Rangers left-handed starter Matt Harrison agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.95 million, avoding arbitration.

Harrison and the Rangers had exchanged figures earlier in the day with Harrison at $3.50 and the club at $2.45. The found middle ground quickly after that at $2.95 million and got the deal done.

That leaves three unsigned salary arbitration players: catcher Mike Napoli, shortstop Elvis Andrus and outfielder Nelson Cruz.

Harrison was 14-9 with a 3.39 ERA in 31 games (30 of them starts) in 2011. He had the second-lowest ERA among Rangers starters and was second in quality starts with 20. He gave up just 13 homers in 185 2/3 innings, the fourth-best ratio of home runs per nine innings in the American League.
