The Rangers could end up shopping pitchers Mark Lowe and Scott Feldman as the non-waiver trade deadline approaches.

Now that the calendars have officially rolled over to June, Major League Baseball's trade market will soon begin to heat up. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has some tidbits regarding the Texas Rangers -- and who he believes they'll be shopping as we get closer to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

With Roy Oswalt now in the fold and hard-throwing prospect Tanner Scheppers pitching well at Triple-A Round Rock, the Rangers are expected to make right-handed pitchers Scott Feldman and Mark Lowe available at the trade deadline, people familiar with their thinking say.

The Rangers, perhaps baseball's best and deepest team, will seek a righty-hitting outfielder in trade.

"People familiar with their thinking" is quite the odd source, but the scenario is plausible, especially with Neftali Feliz ticketed back to the bullpen once he's activated off the disabled list.

Brandon Snyder is hardly an imposing right handed presence off the bench, so it's also quite likely that the Rangers will be looking to add a right handed OF, as Heyman suggests.

There's still plenty of time between now and July 31, so we'll see who becomes available as various clubs scuffle over the next two months.
