General manager Neal Huntington confirmed on Monday that teams have called him regarding the availability of catcher Ryan Doumit on the trade front. Apparently, the Rangers, who do have an interest in the catching market, are not a serious suitor.
Even though there have been reports that the Rangers have talked to the Pirates about Doumit, an American League source confirmed on Tuesday morning that right now Texas is not interested in swinging a trade for the starting catcher.
Texas has been forced to start exploring additional catching options because of a recent injury to Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Saltalamacchia underwent shoulder surgery on Friday and may or may not be ready come Spring Training.
