Rangers | No deal close for Alex Rios
The Texas Rangers aren't close to a deal for Chicago White Sox OF Alex Rios after claiming him on waivers Thursday, Aug. 8. The White Sox are expected to decide whether to trade Rios or pull him off waivers Friday, Aug. 9. They will not release him without compensation, according to a league source. Rios can block trades to six teams, but the Rangers are not on that list. He's owed $12.5 million next year and the remaining part of his $12 million salary this season. His deal includes a $1 million buyout for 2015. If he's traded, the buyout will go up to $2 million and his contract will be raised $500,000 for 2014 and 2015.
