Nolan Ryan possibly leaving the Rangers

Posted: Updated:

Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan may leave the team before spring training ends.

A source told Randy Galloway of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Ryan may be on the way out.

There has been a recent change in the team's leadership. Jon Daniels has been named the president of baseball operations and general manager. Rick George is the new president of business operations.

The Rangers would not comment.

Co-owner Bob Simpson denied that Ryan is leaving.

"We absolutely do not want Nolan to leave. The moves we announced were to preserve Nolan, not to remove him, or remove his power. We want Nolan to be with the Rangers forever, and in charge of the team as long as he wants to be," he was quoted as saying.

Ryan has three more years on his contract with the team.

The team opens its season against new division rival Houston Astros on March 31.
