Per T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers have reopened talks with the Boston Red Sox regarding 3B/1B Mike Lowell.
The Rangers are pushing hard to acquire a right handed bat before tonight’s trade deadline that will allow players to remain on the post season roster. It appears that they are still interested Mike Lowell and talks with the Red Sox have heated up. The Rangers had a deal with Boston for Lowell this past off season that would have sent C Max Ramirez to the Red Sox. But when Lowell required surgery, the deal was off. The Rangers and Red Sox have had talks on and off all summer about Lowell, but they appear to becoming more serious as the deadline approaches tonight.
Sullivan also says the Rangers are interested in Reed Johnson of the Dodgers, Ryan Spilborghs of the Rockies and Jeff Francoeur of the Mets but the Rangers are most interested in Mike Lowell.
