This sounds ominous

From the Texas Rangers' website:

Jason Botts is on his way to Triple-A Oklahoma. He'll join a crowded field of sluggers down there trying to earn playing time and the Rangers' attention.

"It's crowded, but hopefully we'll be able to clear that up soon," general manager Jon Daniels said.

There is no room at the big league level and none expected anytime soon.

That suggests that someone is probably going to be traded, I think.  The COF/1B/DH slots are manned right now by some combo of Nelson Cruz, Kevin Mench, Jason Botts, Nate Gold, and John Mayberry Jr., and the article says there's some interest from other teams in Mench, who hasn't done much thusfar.
