Rangers/M's trade talks "heating up"

New, comments

Both T.R. Sullivan and Jeff Wilson are reporting that the trade talks between the Rangers and M's about the possible acquisition of Cliff Lee are heating up.

Both reports say that Martin Perez and Tanner Scheppers are off-limits, with Wilson saying that Alexi Ogando is approaching untouchable status.

The M's want catching, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia is mentioned as a potential trade chip, although he obviously wouldn't be the major part of a trade.  Chris Davis is also a name that both throw out there, with Sullivan also mentioning Justin Smoak.

Sullivan mentions Derek Holland and Blake Beavan as pitchers that the M's would have interest in...trading Holland to Seattle would make me very, very sad.
