MLB trade rumors: Trade between Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays vetoed?

MLB trade rumors suggest a deal between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays got vetoed. These MLB trade rumors come up at an odd time, especially when considering the player at the center of them. According to a report from Thursday (Jan. 30), it was actually Ian Kinsler that enacted his no-trade clause to keep from going to play in Canada.

The report states that a deal was in place between the Rangers and Blue Jays and that all it would take to be completed was an approval from the All-Star second baseman. He apparently had a clause in his contract that allowed him to not get sent to 10 teams in Major League Baseball.

There has been no indication on which players were set to go to Texas in that proposed deal, but there have been suggestions that it was a salary dump. A salary dump doesn't make much sense, though, especially with the deal that the team ended up making with the Detroit Tigers. Ian Kinsler got dealt straight-up for power-hitting first baseman Prince Fielder, showing that Texas was not that worried about salaries.

These MLB trade rumors come in an offseason where the Toronto Blue Jays haven't accomplished much when improving their roster. That could be incentive for the information to be leaked, especially if the intent is to show fans that they are trying to get things done. More information might be leaked at some point, including what it was that the Texas Rangers were trying to get in the deal.
