Atlanta Braves free agent catcher Brian McCann is leaning toward signing with the Texas Rangers, multiple sources report.


Along with the Rangers, who are likely to lose A.J. Pierzynski via free agency, McCann also likes the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

"We're very early in the process. Brian is exploring his options that he's due under the free-agency rules," McCann's agent, B.B. Abbott said.

Abbott also addressed the fact that McCann has spent eight years with his hometown team already.

"Obviously it's extremely tough," Abbott said. "He was born and raised here. He's an Atlanta guy and we're keeping the door open in Atlanta."

That door may be just slightly cracked. McCann is expected to fetch a contract worth upwards of $100 million, which is probably too steep for the Braves.
