Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Dal­las Mav­er­icks owner Mark Cuban said Fri­day that he is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of buy­ing the Rangers, or per­haps join­ing an­other group in the bid­ding process.

Cuban’s in­ter­est has been sparked, ap­par­ently, af­ter sev­eral re­cent rul­ings in the case low­ered the debt that might be in­cluded from the sale by Rangers owner Tom Hicks.

The Rangers have been for sale for months as Hicks has been em­broiled with cred­i­tors. Rangers pres­i­dent Nolan Ryan and Pitts­burgh busi­ness­man Chuck Green­berg have sub­mit­ted a bid to buy the team.

Cuban said he was in­tent on re­tain­ing Ryan in any own­er­ship sce­nario. ne­sota Twins placed slug­ger Justin Morneau, who suf­fered a con­cus­sion, on the 15-day dis­abled list.

“We’re not go­ing to take any chances,” man­ager Ron Gar­den­hire said.

Morneau was ac­ci­den­tally kneed in the head in Toronto by sec­ond base­man John McDon­ald while try­ing to break up a dou­ble play last week.
