The Atlanta Braves are very close to acquiring Texas Rangers All-Star Mark Teixeira. According to executives on both sides, the Braves are in the process of deciding which prospects to give up and how much money they will absorb from his contract. With the deadline just two days away, the negotiations will probably speed up, and then sent to the commissioner for approval because of the amount of money being transferred. Teixeira is batting .298 AVG with 13 HR and 49 RBI this season and has also been rumored to be heading the Angels, Dodgers, and Yankees.
