Not only are the Braves getting Mark Teixeira, but they're close to acquiring Octavio Dotel from the Royals, according to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal.

It's just pending physicals...

Now onto the Rangers. Where does Salty rank among catchers now? Obviously he's after Martin, Martinez, Mauer, and McCann..

But is he in that next tier?

Also, I have a hard time believing that they bring Botts up to play the OF.. The guy's made for the DH role. He may get some starts out there, but I think Catalanotto would see more time out there than Botts.

I think they'll try and move Sosa, DH Botts, Wilkerson will play 1st, then the OF would be Catalanotto, Byrd, and Cruz.

Cruz was absolutely destroying AAA pitching... I wish the guy would learn to take a pitch .

from rotoworld.com

"The Dallas Morning News believes the Rangers will play Salty at first base for the rest of the season."

Harris
Renteria
Chipper
Teixera
Andruw
Frenchy
McCann

Frenchy and McCann will probably switch spots every now and then but they're probably the ones that "lose" out in terms of batting order.

i think andruw will still bat 4th, and like you said frenchy and mccann will probably swap back and forth depending on the pitcher.

Teix is reported to start batting clean-up as early as tomorrow. a .215 average doesn't look too great for a clean-up batter.

Tex will be hitting fourth per Bobby Cox.

The core of the lineup will be

2. Renteria
3. Chipper.
4. Texeira
5. Andruw
6. McCann
7. Francoeur

That's a sick middle of the order.
