Marlins, Rangers discussing names as part of possible Cantu deal

MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports the Rangers are still talking with the Marlins about acquiring infielder Jorge Cantu prior to Saturday’s nonwaiver trading deadline.

Florida is trying to get two young pitchers from Texas; Frisaro reports one of them is Evan Reed, who is pitching for Double-A Frisco.

Cantu would give Texas a right-handed hitting alternative to first baseman Chris Davis, who has hit poorly since being recalled from the minors. Cantu is batting .260 with 10 home runs and 54 RBIs.
