ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Neftali Feliz agreed to a $3 million contract with the Texas Rangers and Alexi Ogando accepted a deal worth $2,625,000.
The one-year agreements with the right-handed pitcher Friday left designated hitter Mitch Moreland as the only Texas player remaining in salary arbitration.
Feliz returned in August from Tommy John ligament replacement surgery, and pitched 4 2-3 scoreless innings in six appearances. With the departure of Joe Nathan in free agency, Feliz could return to a closer role for Texas.
Ogando was 7-4 with a 3.11 ERA in 18 starts and five relief appearances last season, when he had three stints on the disabled list for right biceps tendinitis and then right shoulder inflammation. Ogando is expected to remain a starter.
Moreland asked for a raise from $502,700 to $3.25 million. Texas offered $2,025,000.
