7/27/2013 | Deadline Chatter: Texas' focus is outfield help
Talk of Michael Young reuniting with the Rangers seems unlikely as Texas is focused on finding outfield help. The Cubs, meanwhile, may be listening on Jeff Samardzija, but they'd have to be blown away to deal the righty, who's under club control for two more seasons.
