Aki Otsuka was a surprise to me as well.Would be a nice pickup for the Yanks but if he shows he's healthy a lot of teams will be interested.

The Rangers did the guy a favor. He will probably get more money as a free agent than he would in arbitration if he s healthy. You would think someone would have traded for him.

The fact that the Rangers non-tendered him tells me that he's rehab isn't going well, which might mean TJ for him.

Agreed. Aki was awesome for them and if they even thought there was a chance that he could help them then he wouldn't be nontendered.

About Otsuka from MLBTR

Ah, now the true story comes out on Otsuka. MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan says the Rangers were going to send him to the White Sox for Chris Carter but the Sox nixed the deal after looking at Otsuka's medical reports. No surprise the Rangers non-tendered him, now.
