Texas Rangers principal owner and CEO, Nolan Ryan, told Jon Morosi of Fox Sports that he does not expect C.J. Wilson to re-sign with the club.
Wilson is considered by many to be one of the top pitching prizes on the free-agent market this winter. The 31-year-old posted a 16-7 record this season for the Texas Rangers, while also recording a 2.94 ERA in over 220 innings of work. Some, however, view the All-Star pitcher as a risk due to his generally short track record as a starting pitcher and his age. Wilson was a reliever for the Rangers from 2005-2009.
It has been reported that the Miami Marlins offered Wilson a six-year deal today, and other teams such as the Washington Nationals, Los Angeles Angels, and the Boston Red Sox have been reportedly interested in the Wilson's services.
