MLB Trade Rumors: Rangers Interested In Rockies Rafael Betancourt

The Texas Rangers are one of many teams who are interested in Colorado Rockies right-handed relief pitcher Rafael Betancourt. Pitching has been an area that the Rangers have been trying to upgrade the is past month and Betancourt would be a good addition to their bullpen.

So far this year Betancourt has a 2.92 ERA, 17 saves and 38 strikeouts in 37 innings of work. The Rangers are not the only team that are after the relief pitcher, the list of teams include the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays. If a team does land Betancourt he is owed $4.25 million in 2013 and there is a mutual option in 2014.
