Rangers-Marlins and Ben Sheets
The Rangers and the Marlins have had some discussions about Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The Marlins aren’t giving up pitching but are interested in trading outfielder Jeremy Hermida, who is 24 and hit .249 with 17 home runs and 61 RBI last year.
That could give the Rangers some outfield depth to trade for pitching. The Rays are looking for a right fielder and are trying to trade pitcher Edwin Jackson.
Also, a Major League source said Ben Sheets is looking for a two-year deal. That might be of interest to the Rangers.
