Ryan: Discussions with owners will continue

Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan makes a public statement for first time since front office shuffle.

More than a week after the Texas Rangers went public with the promotions of Jon Daniels and Rick George, team CEO Nolan Ryan has made a public statement.

The club promoted Daniels to president of baseball operations and George to president of business operations. Ryan had been the team's president but is now solely the CEO.

Ryan hasn't spoken publicly since the move but issued a statement Sunday after meeting with team owners Ray Davis and Bob Simpson.

"Over the last week, Ray Davis, Bob Simpson and I have been in discussion and met in person," the statement said. "The conversations have been productive, and we have discussed my role as CEO of the organization. We agreed these discussions will continue to go forward. I am very proud of what the Rangers have accomplished over the last several years, and I believe our preparations for the upcoming season are what is important."
