Gio Gonzalez Update

Texas Ranger’s Offseason Update:

Gio Gonzalez may be the best pitcher on the trade market this winter.

  • The A’s continue seeking a huge package for Gio Gonzalez, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com tweets. Though the Yankees “love” him, they aren’t eager to surrender prospects such as Jesus Montero, Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances.
  • The Rangers, who are pursuing Gonzalez and Andrew Bailey, can be expected to try to trade for Gonzalez or Matt Garza if they don’t win the bidding on Yu Darvish , tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
  • ESPN.com’s Buster Olney also reports that the Rangers are likely to pursue Gonzalez if they miss out on Darvish. He tweets that 20-year-old left-hander Martin Perez would “almost have to be” in a deal between the A’s and Rangers.
  • The market for Gonzalez and Jon Danks may pick up once the winner in the Darvish bidding is announced and the Rays decide which of their starting pitchers are available, tweets ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark.
