Catching situation clears some with Matt Treanor to OKC

Matt Treanor, acquired March 19 in a trade with Milwaukee, said that he will start the season in Triple A Oklahoma City. That means Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Taylor Teagarden are the Rangers' catchers to start 2010, but there still hasn't been a decision on who will be the primary starter.

Saltalamacchia is scheduled to catch nine innings today against Seattle, catching Rich Harden. A decision might not be made until after Saturday's exhibition game in Frisco.

"I didn't really have a choice in the matter," said Treanor, who missed almost all of last season with a hip injury. "They've treated me very fair and very upfront. I'm going to reciprocate a little bit, zip it up, and get ready to play."

Ben Snyder could also be headed to Oklahoma City. The Rangers are trying to work out a trade with San Francisco that would keep Snyder, a Rule 5 draft choice, in the organization. He has already cleared outright waivers, and San Francisco seems open to working out a deal.

Other roster decisons are coming today. The infield situation could be cleared up some, with Gregorio Petit possibly headed to the minors.
