Peter Gammons says a Ranger official told an Astro official Wednesday night that Texas has acquired Justin Upton.

Peter Gammons just sent out this tweet:

So Gammons says a Ranger official told an Astro official last Wednesday night that they've acquired Justin Upton.

Gammons carries weight on these things.

I will update this as more news comes available. And I'm going to go put "Elvis Andrus is a Ranger 4ever" on my vision board right now.

UPDATE -- Oh, yeah, today's Friday, not Thursday. Which means the comment was made two nights ago, not last night.

UPDATE II -- From Ben Rogers:

False alarm. Sorry everyono. Go about your business.
