Deadline sparks interest in Texas prospects

ARLINGTON -- As Saturday's Trade Deadline draws closer, the Rangers are receiving several inquiries regarding their farm system.

The Marlins are interested in right-handed pitcher Evan Reed as part of a trade for infielder Jorge Cantu, whom the Rangers have been looking at as a right-handed-hitting corner infielder.

Additionally, clubs are inquiring about right-handed pitcher Fabio Castillo, who is 1-3 with a 2.43 ERA in 40 2/3 innings for Class A Bakersfield this season. He's struck out 47 and walked 23 during that span.

Reed was 1-1 with a 1.62 ERA in 30 games with Double-A Frisco this season before being called up to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Reed, the Rangers' third-round pick in 2007, had given up 35 hits in 39 innings with 13 walks and 34 strikeouts in Double-A. He's 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA with Oklahoma City in just two innings of work.

Castillo, a native of the Dominican Republic, was signed by the Rangers in 2005.
