As the Rangers fall further and further out of the AL West race, the rumors about Mark Teixiera keep coming up. But Jon Daniels says he’s not making any calls, though he expects to get plenty. Tex would be an upgrade for an awful lot of teams, but the most obvious one is the Yankees, who have both Jason Giambi and Doug Mientkiewicz on the disabled list.
Another interesting destination could be Detroit, where first base duties are being shared by the unimpressive Sean Casey and the underwhelming Marcus Thames. Better yet, the Tigers are stacked with young pitching, so there’s no doubt they have the ammo to get a deal done.
