Rangers GM Jon Daniels said Wednesday that there have been conversations about moving Matt Bush from the bullpen to the rotation.
Bush was drafted as a big-armed shortstop out of a San Diego high school back in 2004 -- No. 1 overall, in fact -- before nearly throwing his baseball career away with a range of off-field criminal incidents. He moved to the mound by 2007 and the now-31-year-old right-hander has been excellent in relief for the Rangers over the last two seasons, posting a 3.08 ERA, 1.175 WHIP, and 119/33 K/BB ratio in 114 innings. This will be a story to track leading into spring training next year. Oct 4 - 2:21 PM
