From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien tonight:
The Braves and at least two other teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels, were the strongest contenders for Teixeira as of Friday afternoon. But the Angels were reported to be backing out late Friday night. The Rangers could wait this out to the 4 p.m. Tuesday non-waiver trade deadline, hoping a team will cave in to their demands and sweeten an offer.
The Braves have a three-player package featuring their top prospect, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, plus left-handed prospect Matt Harrison and one of two infield prospects, versatile Brent Lillibridge or shortstop Elvis Andrus.
The Braves have asked for one of three Rangers relievers -- closer Eric Gagne, lefty C.J. Wilson, lefty Ron Mahay -- to be included with Teixeira, especially if the Braves are to include Andrus, an 18-year-old defensive whiz.
