Goodbye to Yu? Rangers planning to be 'active' at trade deadline

In that regard, the Dodgers have been linked to Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish since the team announced they would “listen” to offers last week.That would leave the Dodgers among other rumored Darvish suitors, but FanRag Sports reported early Monday that Los Angeles appears to be at an “impasse” with Texas.Darvish, 30, will be a free agent after the season, and while the Rangers would like to re-sign him long-term, there’s no guarantee they will be able to work something out prior to the offseason. Darvish has told the Rangers that he wants to continue his career with them, but a second source said that he wants to see what the market holds for him. If they keep hoarding them, though, they very well could end up with nothing, especially considering the A’s asking price for Gray reportedly is too high for the similarly prospect-rich New York Yankees.With the Detroit Tigers stuck at 47-56, it appears they are going into rebuild mode.If the Dodgers do give up either Verdugo or Buehler, look for left-handed reliever Alex Claudio to come back to Los Angeles in the deal.He is under club control through next year, and as Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports, he could potentially close for the Cubs next year if current closer Wade Davis departs as a free agent after this season. Rangers executives, including general manager Jon Daniels, spent time last weekend at Tampa Bay explaining to Darvish the possibilities ahead of the deadline.
