Rangers first basemen Justin Morneau and Ryan Rua will likely be traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a deal that includes pitcher Zack Greinke, according to multiple reports.
The Rangers announced that they had received a third-round draft pick from the Dodgers for Morneau, who has been a member of the club since the 2016 season.
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has a number of other moves he wants to make, including a deal with the Chicago Cubs to add infielder Javier Baez, according.
Morneau will become a free agent after the 2018 season, according the report.
The Dodgers have a first-round pick in the 2018 draft.
Moralez, 25, has hit .273/.328/.418 with eight home runs in 634 plate appearances with the Rangers, who have been without first baseman Jung Ho Kang for the past two seasons.
Moroz will likely take a pay cut of $5 million to $6 million to play in Los Angeles, according MLB.com’s Jon Morosi.
Moro is owed $6.6 million in 2019, $8 million in 2020, $10 million in 2021, $13.5 million in 2022 and $14 million in 2024, according Topps Baseball Contracts.
Moros contract with the Los Angles Angels expires at the end of the 2018 regular season, and the team has the right to match any offer.
Los Angeles also has the option of sending Moroz to other clubs, according Sports Illustrated’s Ian Rapoport.
Baez will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according ESPN’s Buster Olney.
A Dodgers representative did not immediately return a request for comment.
Los Angle Angels outfielder Josh Reddick, who is on the disabled list with a right oblique strain, is a free-agent candidate.
Reddick hit .271/.352/.434 with a home run in 106 games last season.
Reddicks career numbers have been .279/.362/.429, including .282/.352/429 in 2018, when he played for the Texas Rangers.
Bumgarner and Reddick have played in a combined 17 games since the All-Star break, with Bum’s .917 OPS, while Reddick’s .916 OPS in the same span.
Bakers, 29, has a .293/.360/.434 batting average in 11 games since being promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City on April 27.
Baked is hitting .300/.376/.455 with five home runs and eight RBIs in 38 games this season, with eight of his 10 home runs coming against left-handed pitchers.
He has not hit more than three homers in a game since May 26.
Baker, who will make $7 million this season for the Angels, will earn $2.8 million this year.
