According to ESPN.com, the Texas Rangers are in the market for a corner infielder, and the they "keep coming back" to Red Sox infielder Mike Lowell as a potential target.
The Sox and Rangers agreed upon a trade this winter that would have sent Lowell to Texas in exchange for prospect Max Ramirez, with the Sox assuming $9 million of his $12 million salary for the coming season. That deal was scuttled when it was discovered that Lowell would require surgery to repair a tendon on his right thumb. The ESPN.com article suggests that the Rangers are confident that they can still consummate a deal for Lowell by offering Ramirez.
The surgery forced Lowell to start his spring training later than his teammates. He was further delayed on Friday when he fouled a ball off of his left leg, just above the knee.
