Sources: Rangers & Napoli agree to deal

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (KLTV) - According to sources, the Texas Rangers and catcher Mike Napoli have agreed to a one-year contract worth $9.4 million.

Napoli's status with the team would have been determined by an arbitrator if a deal would not have been reached.

Napoli had been asking for $11.5 million, while the Rangers only offered $8.3 million, in the end, the two came to a compromise.

Napoli was one of the driving forces of the Rangers run to the World Series, hitting 30 homer and driving in 75 in 113 games with Texas.

He also hit for a career high .320 average during the season.

The Rangers have now signed Napoli, Nelson Cruz and Elvis Andrus to new contracts in the last week.
