Texas Rangers Trade Rumors: Everybody But Jurickson Profar Available

Stop me if you've heard this before: Jurickson Profar is really, really, really good. In fact, he's so good that I mused that Profar is Texas' lone untouchable player in the entire organization, as anything short of Bryce Harper or Mike Trout in return for Profar would be a bad deal for Texas.

It looks like Texas' front office agrees with me on this one, at least according to Ron Washington.

Texas has quite the loaded farm system, and they've been linked in rumors to Cole Hamels, Zack Greinke, Justin Upton and Matt Garza. It's likely that Mike Olt is the apple of many teams' eye in trade talks, and if Olt is truly available even for a rental as Washington put it, then the chances of the Rangers pulling the trigger on a blockbuster are fairly high -- well, at least higher than they would be if Olt were off the table.

With pitching injuries plaguing the Rangers this year, a move for Greinke could very well be in the cards. Jon Daniels and the Rangers will likely want to make sure Greinke is healthy first before making any moves for him. The talented righty is scheduled to pitch tomorrow night, so I'd expect Texas to have at least one scout in attendance.
