AP source: SS Andrus has new Rangers deal

By  | 

A person familiar with the negotiations says two-time All-Star shortstop Elvis Andrus has reached an agreement on a $120 million, eight-year extension with the Texas Rangers.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday night because the deal won't be finalized until after a physical. That likely won't happen until Thursday, the day before the team's home opener.

The 24-year-old Andrus, already in his fifth major league season, could earn more than $131 million over 10 seasons.

He is owed more than $11.2 million this season and next before the extension would take effect. The new deal includes a vesting option for 2023 and a chance for Andrus to opt out and become a free agent after the 2018 season when he will be 30.
