The New York Mets, one of the teams that showed interest in Rangers catcher Gerald Laird, are out of the market for a catcher now. The Mets traded for Milwaukee catcher Johnny Estrada on Tuesday, filling the void for a starting catcher. Laird, who lost playing time to Jarrod Saltalamacchia at the end of the season, has been one of the Rangers who has been asked about by several teams. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said last week that his plan was for the Rangers to open camp with both Laird and Saltalamacchia on the roster.
