Is a Laird-Moscoso deal in the works?

Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Tigers and Rangers may be closing in on a deal that would send Guillermo Moscoso to the Rangers for Gerald Laird.

The Tigers need help at catcher and Laird is established. The Rangers need pitching and Moscoso could be close the the majors after posting stellar strike out and walk rates at between A and AA this past season.

  3. Rosenthal is reporting it as a done deal; Laird for Moscoso and a 17 y.o. Dominican Leaguer. Tigers looking to Everett and/or Punto for SS, Everett the favorite.

    Laird will help some althiugh his OBP is lousy (not that he will be a downgrade from what we are used to). Moscoso is already 25 so he probably has a limited upside. An even deal. I’d rather have Everett on a cheap deal than give up players for Wilson and have to pay him $7 mil or whatever. Everett is ++ defensively, a nothing on offense. But the range at SS will definitely help the pitchers.
