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.

    The Martin Perez vs deGrom for opening day debate was a bad one. I wonder why cutting sunk costs is so hard for executives.
