The Rangers and Giants are reportedly close to making a deal that would send catcher Bengie Molina from San Francisco to Texas. Per Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports:
The San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers are in serious talks about a trade that would send veteran catcher Bengie Molina to Texas, multiple sources told FOXSports.com.
One source indicated that the deal could be consummated within the next 24 hours.
A roster move has not yet been made to make room for Omar Beltre, tonight’s starting pitcher. Adam J. Morris of Lone Star Ball speculates the following:
One possibility would be a Molina for Dustin Nippert deal, which would free up a roster spot immediately that could be used for Beltre, since I don’t believe that Molina has to be added to the 25 man roster until he officially reports.
