MLB Trade Rumors: Rangers Interested In Cubs' Derrek Lee Or Marlins' Jorge Cantu

The Rangers are “deep in conversations” with the Marlins to trade for utility man Jorge Cantu, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale. Texas could use a more productive bat at firstbase with Chris Davis continuing to struggle offensively. Cantu isn’t exactly setting the world ablaze, but his .260/.309/.412/.721 statline would be a vast improvement over Davis’ .200/.274/.284/.558

Nightengale also tweets that the Rangers are considering pursuing a deal to acquire Derrek Lee from the struggling Cubs, although that seems to be far less likely than landing Cantu.
