Rangers to consider deals for 'core-type' players


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Rangers will consider what their "core-type" players will bring back in a trade, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Both Andrus and Beltre are owed a significant amount of money going forward, and it's possible the team would have to cover some salary in deals for either player. General manager Jon Daniels said the team is in a position to make some deals, but hedged by saying "there is no rule you have to make a major change before the deadline."
