Outside of the NBA, you rarely see a team acquire a player and then trade him just a few days/weeks later.
That’s something the Texas Rangers are apparently open to doing, assuming the price is right.
Just a few weeks after acquiring starter Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs, Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says that the Rangers are willing to trade Garza as pretty much anybody and everybody is available:
Remember yesterday when
@jonmorosi and I said that virtually all of the #Rangers were in play? List includes the newly acquired Matt Garza.
The Rangers are in a unique position of almost being buyers and sellers at the same time – something you don’t really ever see.
Of course, it’s unlikely that the Rangers will move Garza as the report is mostly a note that pretty much everybody is available for the right price.
If the Rangers were to move Garza, it would take a pretty overwhelming deal to do so.
In two games, Garza is 1-0 with a 0.91 ERA for Texas.
