The C.J. Wilson derby appears to be a two-team race between the Angels and Miami Marlins after the Texas Rangers all but resigned themselves to losing their ace Wednesday.

"Until C.J. makes a decision, we can't rule anything out, but we understand that's a realistic possibility," Texas General Manager Jon Daniels told Rangers writers at the winter meetings. "I haven't received a call to say he's chosen to go elsewhere, but we're prepared for that call."

The Rangers are believed to have offered Wilson a four-year deal in the $60-million range, but the Marlins reportedly have offered a six-year deal, and the Angels are believed to have offered a five-year contract in excess of $70 million.
