Texas Rangers rumors: Joakim Soria drawing interest from Angels, Blue Jays, Tigers

Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi say that teams are sniffing around on Joakim Soria

Texas Rangers rumors:  Joakim Soria is drawing interest from Toronto, the Angels, and the Tigers, according to Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal:

Soria has been terrific this year, even though there are a dearth of save opportunities for Ranger pitchers, and Soria has a team option for 2015 at $7 million, which makes him a more attractive trade target than a rent-a-pitcher would be.

Of course, that 2015 option makes Soria more attractive to the Rangers, as well, and as they reportedly see themselves as contenders for 2015, it seems likely they will want a significant package in order to part with Soria.

Neither the Angels nor the Tigers have real strong farm systems, but Toronto has some intriguing players in the minors, and would seem to be the best fit.

Jason Frasor and Neal Cotts are also supposedly available and are free agents after the season, so a team likely for a wholesale upgrade to its pen could look to add one or both of those pitchers, as well as Soria.
