A person with knowledge of the deal says the Detroit Tigers and Texas have agreed to a blockbuster trade that would send slugger Prince Fielder to the Rangers for second baseman Ian Kinsler.
    
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because no announcement had been made.
    
Fielder signed a $214 million, nine-year contract with the Tigers before the 2012 season that includes a limited no-trade provision, and the big first baseman was set to approve the deal.
    
Kinsler just finished the first season of a $75 million, five-year contract.
    
The deal was first reported by CBSSports.com.
    
AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum in New York contributed to this report.
