According to Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network, the Rangers and Brewers are finalizing a trade to send catcher Jonathan Lucroy to Texas. Past that, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress is also headed to the Rangers.

So the headline here is obviously Lucroy, who vetoed a deal to the Indians on Sunday morning. The 30-year-old catcher is hitting .299/.359/.482 with 17 doubles, 13 homers and 50 RBI this season. Given that he's a very good defensive catcher, the excellent offense he brings is gravy. And gravy is always good, no?

Rangers catchers this season have hit .233/.287/.422, so this is a huge upgrade.

With Lucroy and Carlos Beltran now in the order, the Rangers can order those two with Ian Desmond and Adrian Beltre for an incredibly potent middle of the order, and that isn't even mentioning the power through the rest of the lineup.

Further, the Rangers have a 4.78 bullpen ERA this season, so Jeffress helps matters there. The 28-year-old right-hander is 27 for 28 in saves with a 2.22 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings this season. He won't unseat Sam Dyson for the closer role, but getting another late-inning guy pushes everyone else back and makes the group as a whole better.

So the trade is great for the 2016 Texas Rangers and that's what matter. They've been in first in the AL West for a long time and have a six-game lead. The price they paid could pay huge dividends for the Brewers as well.

Brinson is a 22-year-old center fielder who Baseball America ranked as the 15th best prospect in baseball before the season started. In 77 games for Double-A Frisco, he's hitting just .237/.280/.431 with 14 doubles, six triples, 11 homers and 11 steals. Last season, though -- between three different levels, mostly Class A-Advanced -- he hit .332/.403/.601 with 31 doubles, eight triples, 20 homers and 18 steals. So the talent is clearly there.

As for the aforementioned prospect rankings, Ortiz was 64th. He's a right-handed pitcher and in 16 appearances between Class A-Advanced and Double-A, he has a 3.48 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 62 strikeouts against only 13 walks in 67 1/3 innings.
