Rogers Remains a Ranger For Now

Kenny Rogers blocked a trade to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, choosing to pitch for the last place Texas Rangers instead of joining a team in a playoff race. Rogers invoked a no-trade clause in his contract to stop the proposed deal for three Reds minor leaguers. The swap was arranged over the weekend, and Rogers took time to talk about the proposed move with family and friends.

The Reds had lobbied Rogers to approve the trade. Manager Bob Boone and several players left phone messages, and GM Jim Bowden spoke to the pitcher several times by phone, trying to persuade him.

Rumors now are floating around about a possible deal between the Rangers and Mariners that would include Rogers. The 37 year-old Rogers is in the last season of a three year contract. He is 10 - 5 with a 3.39 ERA this season for the Rangers.
