Rangers reportedly trade Saltalamacchia to Red Sox

Multiple reports say that the Rangers have traded Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the Red Sox.

More on this as it develops.

UPDATE -- Sean McAdams says it is for two minor leaguers, a player to be named later, and cash.

I thought a move with a fringe guy might happen to clear room on the 40 man roster for Cristian Guzman, but I was expecting someone like Brandon Boggs or Guillermo Moscoso, not Salty.

Boston has wanted him for a while.

UPDATE -- Evan Grant says it is RHP Roman Mendez and 1B Chris McGuinness for the minor leaguers. 

UPDATE -- Kevin Goldstein says picking up Mendez is good for Texas.

UPDATE -- Here's a write-up on Mendez at Over The Monster, the SBN BoSox blog, from September, 2009. 

UPDATE -- The cash is reportedly $350,000 going from Boston to the Rangers.
