Rangers reach deal to trade Gonzalez

.c The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Juan Gonzalez was not in the Texas Rangers' lineup Tuesday night, and manager Buck Showalter confirmed the team reached an agreement with an unidentified team to trade the two-time AL MVP.

The Rangers wouldn't identify the team they are dealing with, or what they would get in return, because Gonzalez has a no-trade clause in his contract. The outfielder has 72 hours to accept or turn down the trade.

Showalter confirmed the trade during his regular gathering with reporters before Tuesday night's game against Oakland. General manager John Hart didn't immediately return phone messages.

Gonzalez is in the second year of his $24 million, two-year deal he signed to return to Texas before the 2002 season. The Rangers would likely pay most of Gonzalez's remaining salary.

Gonzalez is hitting .286 with 18 homers and 50 RBIs.
