Rangers talking to Astros about catcher Carlos Corporan

carlos corporan ap

After trading for Hank Conger (and Evan Gattis) the Astros have too many catchers, so Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that they’ve “discussed a trade” for Carlos Corporan with the Rangers.

Corporan seems unlikely to fetch much in return. Set to make $975,000 this season via arbitration, he’s a 31-year-old career .226 hitter with a .637 OPS in 659 plate appearances as a journeyman big leaguer.

In other words, he’s a backup. And those guys tend to be traded for players to be named later or cash considerations.
