The Rangers are close to announcing the return of catcher Matt Treanor, according to MLB.com.
"I don't know if it will happen in the next day, but we're pretty confident Matt is coming back," general manager Jon Daniels said.
Treanor, who hasn't shown he can hit at the big-league level (.211/.287/.308 last season), would back up Yorvit Torrealba, acquired by the Rangers this week. Bengie Molina, the Rangers' primary catcher last season, hasn't officially announced his retirement, but obviously the team is going forward without him.
