Jennings to Texas?

Former Rockies starter (and National League Rookie of the Year) Jason Jennings, according to the Dallas Morning News (whose site I will admit I was only visiting in order to gloat about the Cowboys' loss yesterday), is on the verge of signing with the Texas Rangers. Jennings missed large chunks of 2007 with elbow problems after the Rockies sent him to Houston for Willy Taveras, Jason Hirsh, and Taylor Buchholz. If he's right (and the story above strongly suggests that the only thing preventing Texas from finalizing the deal is Jennings' passing a physical) it's a good pickup for the pitching-poor Rangers, who could use a starter with Jennings' groundball and innings-eating skills.

Also, in the American League, he won't have to run the bases.
