MLB Trade Rumors: Texas Rangers Interested In Acquiring Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez, According To Report

According to FOX Sports reporters Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi, the Texas Rangers are interested in adding an impact outfielder in the near future, and the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez is near the top of their list.

Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez, who could ultimately succeed Hamilton as the Rangers' No. 3 hitter and everyday left fielder, would be the ideal solution. He is at or near the top of the Rangers' outfield wish list for 2013, sources say. Gonzalez won the batting title two years ago, ranks sixth among NL hitters in OPS and is signed to a reasonable contract through 2017.
