Texas Rangers Rumors: Brewers Ace Becoming Trade Target

The Texas Rangers are looking to finally get back into the playoffs in 2023. They have made a variety of moves, and they are hoping that it will be enough for them to be contenders this season. However, it appears that they want to make another major move, as they are linked to Milwaukee Brewers star pitcher Corbin Burnes.

Burnes was transparent when he noted that the relationship between him and the Brewers has been negatively impacted by their arbitration hearing. Due to this, he has emerged as a major trade candidate, and the Rangers are now trying to be the lucky club to acquire him. 

Burnes would provide the Rangers with another ace-level starter, and it could be the very move that makes them favorites in the AL West. We will now need to wait and see if their interest in the star pitcher results in them winning the sweepstakes from here. Other teams linked to him include the Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Philadelphia Phillies.
