Rudy Gay will exercise his $19.3M option, but has tabled extension talks until after July 1.
Gay will have another year as the Kings top man to help pad his resume, all the while, raking in a boatload of cash. He'll skip the extension talks for the time being, watch the free agent market and then decide whether it's in his financial best-interest to sign an extension or play the field.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
