Rangers claim Alex Rios on waivers
Arlington, TX — The Texas Rangers have reportedly claimed White Sox outfielder Alex Rios on trade waivers, and have until Saturday to complete a trade for him.
The two sides discussed a Rios deal prior to the July 31 trade deadline, but nothing got too close. The Rangers essentially dropped out of the bidding a couple days before the deadline, although that was before Nelson Cruz accepted a 50-game suspension for receiving banned substances in the Biogenesis of America scandal.
