Sheets is also a Type-A free agent and was offered arbitration by the Brewers. That means a club would lose a Draft pick if it signed him.The Rangers would lose a second-round pick, but that hasn't deterred them from showing interest. Both Maddux and club president Nolan Ryan have high regard for Sheets. The Rangers have also looked at Sheets' medical reports. But they have also yet to make an offer. Sheets was one of the topics brought up by fans to Daniels at Tuesday's Town Hall meeting. The status of shortstop Michael Young was another. Daniels reiterated his stance that he expects Young to stay with the Rangers, but also is hoping he'll agree to move to third base. "We asked Michael -- it's a matter of semantics: asked, requested, told, begged -- to move to third base," Daniels said. "We feel the club is best suited having Michael move to third in the short-term and long-term. We love Michael. We have nothing negative to say or will say about him. He's a tremendous player and teammate. We're not looking to trade him and have no plans to. We plan on him being a big part of our ballclub going forward." Daniels expressed those sentiments to Young's agent, Dan Lozano, in a phone call on Monday night. The GM has not spoken to Young lately.
