Rangers announce deal with Mike Napoli

2/12/2012

The Rangers made it official Sunday that they've come to terms on a one-year deal with catcher Mike Napoli, taking care of their final piece of arbitration-eligible business.

A sourced told ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett on Saturday night that the deal was worth $9.4 million.

The Rangers settled with their other arbitration-eligible players -- Nelson Cruz and Elvis Andrus -- in the last week. Texas hasn't gone to an arbitration hearing since 2000.

General manager Jon Daniels will discuss the contract in a conference call this afternoon.
