Grant's latest

It's the last line that really intrigues me.

Quiet day: The Rangers continue to sift through trade offers for first baseman Mark Teixeira, but Thursday passed with no significant movement. The Los Angeles Angels, one of three teams in the mix for Teixeira, were the most recent to tweak their offer. The Angels had originally offered first baseman Casey Kotchman and a choice of outfield prospects Nathan Haynes or Terry Evans.

It is believed Los Angeles has now added a pitcher to the mix, but the level of pitcher could vary widely from a young prospect with a high ceiling (20-year-old right-hander Nick Adenhart) to an experienced but struggling major leaguer (recently demoted Ervin Santana) to a prospect on the verge of pitching in the majors (lefty Joe Saunders).

The Braves and Rangers have talked about a deal that would focus on first baseman/catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and also include a minor league pitcher (lefty Matt Harrison) and minor league infielder (Elvis Andrus).

The Rangers have also talked seriously with the Dodgers about a deal for Teixeira and either Joaquin Benoit or Eric Gagne.

If Gagne, just off a two-save day, and Teixeira are on the table, I mean, there has to be serious value coming back.

I know everyone's fatigued on the trade rumors, but I'd like to know what those two fetch from the Dodgers.

It wouldn't be Kershaw, but wow.
