Rangers reportedly trade Saltalamacchia to Red Sox

New, 621 comments

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.
