Was destined for the top 20 on this list before undergoing Tommy John surgery in July. Still a worthy risk for a pitching-needy club like the Rangers, presumably on a multi-year deal that includes a cheap first season. His upside puts him ahead of other just-missed candidates like Matt Albers, Jose Bautista, Carlos Beltran, Rajai Davis, Jarrod Dyson, Jaime Garcia, Tommy Hunter, Jon Jay, Brandon Kintzler, Mitch Moreland, Mike Napoli, Juan Nicasio, Chris Tillman and Danny Valencia.
