ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have called a news conference Thursday to announce the new contract for two-time All-Star shortstop Elvis Andrus.
Andrus and the Rangers this week agreed on a contract guaranteeing him $120 million over an additional eight seasons through 2022 with the Rangers. The deal includes a vesting option for 2023.
With the two years left on his current deal at more than $11.2 million, Andrus would earn more than $131 million over 10 seasons.
The 24-year-old Andrus is already in his fifth major league season. He was 4-for-13 (.308) in the Rangers' opening series at Houston. He tied a franchise record with two triples Tuesday night in Yu Darvish's near-perfect game.
