www.MLBTradeRumors.com has two difference blurbs about the Rangers trying to put the pieces in place to trade Mitch Moreland to the Rays for Wade Davis. Their two targets are Prince and Casey McGahee. Apparently they would move McGahee to first, allowing either player to give them the flexibility to move Moreland.
Personally I'm not really loving this deal. Moreland's slash line last year was 259/316/414 and that was with half of his games played at the Ballpark in Arlington. Moreland is 26 years old, so it's possible he's about to spike, but he is less than I would want out of Davis. He appears to be significantly less skilled than a guy like Alonso and would even represent a downgrade from Kotchman based on last years performance.
