Texas Rangers Catchers
Posted by Mike on November 13, 2008
Per MLB Blogs:
The Rangers have catchers to trade. The Red Sox have young pitching. There seems to be a match but nothing is brewing.
The Rangers have made it clear they covet Clay Buchholz. Right now the Red Sox are not inclined to move him. They still have to decide what is going to happen with Jason Varitek. If the re-sign Varitek, they certainly aren’t going to trade Buchholz for a catcher.
The Red Sox also have Justin Masterson and Michael Bowden. But some view Masterson more as a reliever than the starter that the Rangers desire. Bowden is nice prospect but may not be the impact pitcher the Rangers are looking for right now. Buchholz is the guy but there is no movement there.
