Cantu, Rangers rumors gain steam

Jorge Cantu singled and scored in the fourth inning, about the same time the latest report surfaced that the veteran was on the verge of being traded.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com, the Marlins and Rangers are finalizing a deal that would send Cantu to Texas for two Minor League pitchers.

As MLB.com reported Wednesday, right-hander Evan Reed of Double-A Frisco was one of them. The second is right-hander Omar Poveda, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Rosenthal reported Poveda, and MLB.com confirmed the right-hander also is the prospect the Marlins were looking at.

The Rangers have been closely scouting Cantu since the All-Star Break. The Giants and Rockies also have had interest.
