Texas sent pitcher CLINT BRANNON to Chicago (NL) as the player-to-be-named in the trade for pitcher JON LEICESTER.
The Rangers drafted Brannon in the 34th round of the 2004 draft. He shredded the short-season Northwest League, then gave an okay performance in a level hop to the high-A hitter-friendly California League. Leicester for Brannon seems reasonable.
