Rangers To Acquire Matt Treanor

1:57pm: The Royals are about to send catcher Matt Treanor back to the Rangers in a cash transaction, tweets Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.

12:50pm: A club source tells MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan the Rangers will "likely do something today."  In Sullivan's opinion, the team's biggest need is a right-handed bat.

    My $$ is on Rowand… Plays center, and all 3 OF spots in fact.

      Rowand doesn’t really qualify as a “bat.”

      • jondogg2010 4 years ago

        You sir are correct. I just had a hunch that a move would be made in that direction given the current circumstances.

      Talk about putting your $$ on someone. You would put a lot of your $$ on him.

    Don’t count on it. Texas has been looking at a lefty specialist for a while now. That’s a much more likely move I’d think.

    Pujols to Rangers with Cards paying his contract for PTBNL

    they should get a reliever

    Rangers or Phillies?

  9. Isn’t Beltre supposed to be a RH bat or are they not expecting him to return?

    As an Astros fan, Carlos Lee would be a good fit, I think.  Wink, wink.

  11. Berkman the switchie.

  12. Matt Galvin 4 years ago

    As they need another Catcher.

    Thanks for the good half a season, Treanor. He’s good on defense and he gets on base a lot

    Why treanor? I understand he’s a feel-good story for the team to get him back, but what does he provide that we don’t already have or need?

      Like Evan Grant said in an article today, adding another catcher gives the Rangers flexibility. They can’t get Teagarden back til Sunday apparently and they can play Matt at catcher or DH him. Not exactly the blockbuster move I was hoping for to make the hitting game more threatening.

      • baschkar 4 years ago

        I didn’t know that about Teagarden. Still depth at catcher/DH didn’t seem like an issue. I guess it’s ok since it was for cash.

    Treanor? I don’t get the need to have a third catcher unless Moreland is moving to RF, with Naps at 1st. Which could be the case..

  18. Ha!  Treanor… what a mundane conclusion to an intriguing article….
