    Rangers Acquire Pudge From Astros

    Rangers Acquire Pudge From AstrosBy Ben Nicholson-Smith [August 18 at 1:22pm CST]

    1:22pm: Jeff Wilson of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers are responsible for a pro-rated portion of Pudge's $1.5MM contract, which includes $1.5MM in incentives.

    1:16pm: Jon Heyman of SI.com hears that the Rangers are giving up two mid-level prospects to acquire Rodriguez.

    12:47pm: MLB.com's Noah Coslov reports that the Rangers acquired Pudge for a player to be named later.

    12:18pm: The Rangers are close to re-acquiring Ivan Rodriguez, according to MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan. Sullivan says the Astros would obtain two mid-tier prospects for Rodriguez, who starred with the Rangers from 1991-2002. The Rangers have told Rodriguez that he will back Taylor Teagarden up and Pudge understands the arrangement.

    Not sure I understand why the Rangers want Pudge at this stage of his career.

    Catching depth. Salty's injured.

    Has little to do with Pudge as much as it does needing a warm body.

    Pudge is pretty much only good as a warm body at this point of his career.

    He's coming home. He may be able to help some of the pitchers down the stretch.

    loaded with all those catching prospects yet they have to bring Pudge back (he is an offensive black hole these days).

    Would have been nice to have a healthy Hernandez around to trade. Would have saved some money and gotten a prospect or two. Oh well.
