Rangers open to adding 2B

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has had a great year, putting together a first-place team and then adding to it with Cliff Lee and Jorge Cantu despite financial constraints.

Well, Daniels might not be done. He indicated to the Dallas Morning News on Thursday that the groin strain suffered by All-Star second baseman Ian Kinsler is going to keep him out until "mid- to late-August," and he's open to another trade to make sure the Rangers are covered at second.

Cantu, acquired from Florida on Thursday, has played second, but not with any regularity since 2006. The Rangers want him to stick with first base.

"We're still open-minded," Daniels said. "I think we can be a little more selective now. I don't think we have to do anything else. But if we can improve the club without cutting into our core, we'd be open to that. I don't think you are ever done."

The Rangers are currently playing Joaquin Arias and Andres Blanco at second. There are a few players thought to be available who can play second, including Dan Uggla (although he's still owed about $2.6 million, and you'd think he would have been packaged with Cantu if Texas was interested), Ty Wigginton and possibly Adam Kennedy and Ryan Theriot.
