Here’s an interesting one.
According to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, the Rangers are discussing a trade that would send Chris Davis and Darren O’Day to the Cubs.
Davis, who turns 24 in March, has a modest .248/.300/.459 batting line at the big league level and has struggled to make contact, but could be a solution for the Cubs at first base. If they agree on a deal, that probably means the Cubs are out on free-agent first baseman Carlos Pena.
It’s not clear who the Rangers want in return, but it’s possible that they could covet either Robinson Chirinos or Welington Castillo, two young catchers who are currently blocked by Geovany Soto with the big club. Then again, the Rangers just gave a two-year, $6.25 million contract to Yorvit Torrealba, so what do I know? In any case, expect more players involved in the deal, if it happens. It’s even possible that they could be targeting a specific prospect to use in a trade for Zack Greinke or Matt Garza.
