MLB owners approve Rangers sale

The sale of the Texas Rangers has been approved in a unanimous vote by MLB owners, said managing general partner Chuck Greenberg via text. Greenberg is in Minnesota for the owners meetings along with general manager Jon Daniels.

Official word from the league is expected to come later this morning.

Closing on the team could take place as early as later today, but Greenberg and club president Nolan Ryan, along with the entire ownership group, are expected to be the owners when the club faces Boston on Friday at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

More to come later after the meetings this morning conclude.
