Rays Acquire Juan Apodaca From Rangers

The Rays acquired minor-league C Juan Apodaca from the Rangers today for cash considerations.

Apodaca, 26, has played 10 years in the minors and will join Triple-A Durham. He was in big-league camp with the Rangers and has been on the DL with a forearm strain.

The deal is separate from the trade the Rays made Monday when they sent C Robinson Chirinos too the Rangers for a player to be named or cash.
