The Rangers have agreed to a deal to acquire reliever Koji Uehara from the Orioles, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com.

Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter will go to the Orioles in the deal, which is awaiting approval because of the money involved ($2 million going to the Rangers, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com).

The 36-year-old Uehara has a 1.72 ERA this year, and he has been one of the most sought-after relievers on the July market. Uehara has held opponents to a .152 batting average and .477 OPS.

The Rangers had also been talking to the Padres about closer Heath Bell, and Texas is one of the final three teams pursuing starter Hiroki Kuroda of the Dodgers. The Rangers It wasn't immediately clear whether Texas would continue to try for Bell, or whether the Rangers would turn their attention to adding a starter.

According to sources, the Rangers were not aggressively going after Kuroda earlier in the day Saturday.

Davis, an infielder, has gone back and forth between the Rangers and their Triple-A team this season. He is hitting .250 in 77 big-league at-bats. Hunter, a right-hander who won 13 games last season, has pitched out of the bullpen for the Rangers this year.

The Uehara trade was first reported by the Baltimore Sun.

I think they have one more move as well and it should be for a starter that fits into the middle of their rotation (Kuroda, etc)...would allow them to move one of their lefties into the pen. Now the back of your pen is a former lefty starter, Oliver, Uehara, Lowe and Feliz. Not going with three lefties in the playoffs anyway

not a bad deal.  chris davis sux.  tommy hunter is ok but not great.  I was not crazy about trading scheppers and two other top prospects to rent heath bell.  but all of us die hard ranger fans know davis and hunter are officially future allstars now since we traded them #curse of ranger gm's

btw if we don't add a significant starter it doesn't matter, might as well turn on football in the clubhouse and just play it out.

Fine...Chris Davis.  But Hunter TOO?????  If Hunter hadn't been injured to start the year he easily would have been the 3rd starter!  I guess this means Ogando will NEVER go back to the pen and the Rangers have far LESS flexibility with Wilson and Lewis.  I can't believe this was the price.  Feldman, Strop, O'Day?  Any two of those.......not Hunter.
