MLB Trade Rumors: Red Sox Called Rangers About Josh Beckett

The Josh Beckett era in Boston might be soon be ending. The Red Sox have started to search for destinations for their struggling starting pitcher and one the teams they called were the Texas Rangers.

There are several reasons why Boston believes Beckett would waive his 10-and-5 rights in a deal to Texas. First and foremost, the Rangers seem poised for another trip to the postseason after back-to-back World Series appearances. Also, Beckett grew up in Texas.

If Boston isn't asking for much in return, these rumors could pick up steam over the next two days.
