Teams that have spoken to the Texas Rangers are convinced that they think the Rangers expect OF Nelson Cruz to be suspended soon for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal because Texas has been the most aggressive in looking for an outfield bat to trade for. "They have to have had that conversation," a high-ranking executive of one rival club said of Cruz and the Rangers. "If you're his GM, you have to go to him and say, 'What are your plans if you get suspended?' You're not doing your job if you don't have that conversation. And depending on the answer, I'm sure that conversation will lead to another one." The Rangers have asked about Chicago White Sox OF Alex Rios, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence, Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp, San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin and Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Cruz, you should be doing something similar to what the Rangers are doing: build depth behind Cruz just in case he is suspended and doesn't appeal the process. Cruz can be had on the cheap right now if you're willing to take the chance that he misses the rest of the season.

The San Francisco Giants are listening to offers for OF Hunter Pence, SP Tim Lincecum and RP Javier Lopez, but the price is believed to be "very strong" for Pence and Lincecum. The Giants plan on making qualifying offers to both Pence and Lincecum once the season is over, which would bring them draft choices if they don't take the offer and sign with another team. The high asking price is likely to keep Lincecum around more so than Pence, since he'll still be coveted.

Texas has also shown interest in Miami Marlins OF Justin Ruggiano, New York Mets OF Marlon Byrd and San Diego Padres OF Chris Denorfia.
