The Sunday Read: Corey Seager injury might have Rangers seeking deadline depth

Owen White didn’t make his start Saturday night at Triple A Round Rock, and the buzz around Dell Diamond was that he was being promoted to the Rangers.
Aaron Zavala was in the starting lineup for Double A Frisco, but was quickly out.
Max Acosta started for High A Hickory but was replaced after only two at-bats.
A couple margaritas in and my undying reporter’s instinct took over.
Three prospects scratched/pulled on the same night? Sure smells like a trade.
Alas, a trusted source said that the sunglasses Zavala was wearing cut his nose as he dived for a ball and that Acosta had been ejected. White? He’s in Arlington.
The trade deadline is only eight days away, at 5 p.m. Aug. 1, and the Rangers, leaders of the American League West, need help.
