Rangers eye first baseman Cantu, ace Oswalt
The Rangers are trying to acquire a righthanded-hitting first baseman, and Jorge Cantu has been a focus. There were discussions Monday with the Marlins, and Cantu may be a more likely option than Ty Wigginton or Xavier Nady.
The Rangers also have kept their eye on Astros ace Roy Oswalt, who appears to prefer Texas or St. Louis and has a full no-trade clause. But while the Rangers wisely saved some money and have excellent prospects to trade, one person familiar with the situation called Oswalt a "long shot" for them.
