Daniels, who spent 17 years as the Rangers’ GM, was likely going to be in high demand. He built multiple successful teams, including back-to-back American League champions in 2010 and 2011. The Rangers fired him in August with the team’s rebuild stalled out.
One would figure that if Daniels wants to run a team again, he might not have to wait long to do so. His time with the Rays might wind up being a stopover as he awaits a suitable opening.
