Lukewarm Stove: Rangers Still Considering Xavier Nady

Chicago Cubs

This rumor is about as lukewarm as it gets, given that there are no details beyond that headline. But, hey, you’re here. Might as well keep reading, right?

The Rangers remain interested in a right-handed-hitting first baseman it can pair with Chris Davis. The Cubs’ Xavier Nady is among those on the Rangers’ radar.

The cash-strapped, bankrupt Rangers can look only at cost-effective options. Thus, a guy like Nady – who’s owed just a bit over $1 million for the rest of the season – might be as good as it gets for the Rangers.

As for the Cubs, with the emergence of Tyler Colvin, Kosuke Fukudome is hardly seeing the field, let alone Xavier Nady. Whatever the Cubs could get for Nady would probably be a win.
