They also are free of Valverde and his 9M so they are in line to make a strong run at Rafael Soriano for his replacement. They also have other money coming off the books to look to upgrade in RF or SS if they decline Peralta's option. They also have big time prospect Nick Castellanos who they could deal to land a key player if they want to move him since 3B, 1B and DH are locked up for a couple years in Motown. Elvis Andrus could be on their targets list with the Rangers having Jurickson Profar MLB ready.
