Andrus agrees to 3 year deal

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Shortstop Elvis Andrus and the Texas Rangers have finalized a $14.4 million, three-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

He gets a $750,000 signing bonus and salaries of $2,375,000 this year, $4.8 million in 2013 and $6,475,000 in 2014. He then becomes eligible for free agency.

A hearing had been scheduled for Thursday. Andrus had asked for $3.6 million and had been offered $2.65 million. The 23-year-old hit a career-best .279 with 37 stolen bases last year when the Rangers won their second consecutive American League pennant. He made $452,180.
