Taking the "Tex" Out of the Texas Rangers, Looks Like
This isn't on DallasNews.com yet, but Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that:
The Braves are on the verge of acquiring Rangers first baseman Mark Teixeira.
The deal is done, pending a review of the medical records of the players involved, according to major-league sources.
The Braves will receive Teixeira and left-handed reliever Ron Mahay.
The Rangers will receive catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Class A shortstop Elvis Andrus and two pitching prospects.
Developing. Unlike the Rangers. --Robert Wilonsky
