It looks like the Texas Rangers mean serious business and want to get some more deals done before the trade deadline in hopes of bulking up their active roster. They are also interested in his teammate Alex Rios.
De Aza, 29, is batting .275/.332/.437 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 93 games this season for the Chicago White Sox. He carries more years of contractual control than Alex Rios, but Rios has the better offensive track.
As usual, it will come down to asking price. This to me is the most exciting part of the season for me, even though my team (Chicago Cubs) are always sellers. To see who teams are interested in and what prospects they are interested in dealing, watching the trade unfold after time goes on is always entertaining.
But as of right now the Texas Rangers could have some prospects that could catch the attention of the Chicago White Sox front office. But which White Sox outfielder would or should the Rangers go after? To me, I say you give up what you can to bring in that bat of Alex Rios.
Hearing the Rangers have interest in Alejandro De Aza.
