According to a Major League source, the Rangers on Thursday were awarded the prevailing claim on Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios.

The White Sox can either work a trade with the Rangers within 72 hours, allow Texas to simply take on Rios' contact via the waiver claim or pull him back from waivers.

The Rangers had shown some interest in Rios before the trade deadline but his age (32), his lack of impact power and a contract worth $13.5 million for 2014 made them leery.

More details to come.
