Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan issued the following statement on Sunday:

"Over the last week, Ray Davis, Bob Simpson, and I have been in discussion and met in-person. The conversations have been productive, and we have discussed my role as CEO of the organization. We agreed these discussions will continue as we go forward.

I am very proud of what the Rangers have accomplished over the last several years, and I believe our preparations for upcoming season are what is important."

Last week, we heard Ryan could soon leave the Rangers as the result of a front office restructing that appeared to reduce his power. CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman hears Ryan isn't happy with the new setup and had more on the situation Friday.
