Nolan Ryan spent his final week at spring training watching Cactus League games from the front row of Surprise Stadium, so he has a feel for the 2013 Texas Rangers.

But if he has a feel for his future with the team as its CEO he wasn’t saying so Friday afternoon at the Alamodome ahead of the first game at Big League Weekend.

“We’re looking forward to the start of the season,” he said. “I don’t have any time frame.”

Ryan reportedly is uncertain of his future with the club in light of Jon Daniels’ promotion to president of baseball operations/general manager, a move that stripped Ryan of his team president title.

Ryan will be in Houston on Sunday for the Rangers’ season opener and will be at Rangers Ballpark on Friday for their home opener, according to sources who are surprised by the lack of movement since a March 8 meeting with principal owners Bob Simpson and Ray Davis.

A source said that Ryan wants to ensure that he will have a meaningful voice when it comes to baseball decisions, and that he won’t stay with the club “to be a mascot and sign autographs.”

Daniels and Ryan have discussed baseball decisions the past month but have not spoken about his future with the team. Ryan seemed well-versed on the team, and he expects the Rangers to be a playoff team this season, assuming pitching and health hold up.

“That’s my expectation,” he said. “That’s what you hope for coming out of spring training, that that’s the position you’re in. I look at our ballclub in that way.”
