ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have finalized a $55 million, five-year contract with All-Star left-hander Matt Harrison.
The deal announced Thursday includes a 2018 club option that could become guaranteed depending on the number of innings Harrison pitches.
Harrison was 18-11 with a 3.29 ERA in 32 starts last year and is 32-20 over 399 innings during the past two seasons. He started Game 7 of the 2011 World Series, which the Rangers lost at St. Louis.
Texas acquired Harrison along with shortstop Elvis Andrus and right-hander Neftali Feliz from Atlanta in July 2007 in a seven-player deal that sent Mark Teixeira to the Braves.
Harrison has a career record of 48-30 with a 4.08 ERA in 126 games the past five years.
