Jacob deGrom says he, Rangers share same vision

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Two-time Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom sees the vision of what the Texas Rangers want to do, not their streak of six consecutive losing seasons and being more than a decade removed from their only World Series appearances.

"The Rangers did a great job with constant communication and making me feel like they really wanted me here," deGrom said Thursday during his introduction in Texas. "The vision was the same, build something great, and win year in and year out."

DeGrom is the latest big-money add -- $185 million, five-year deal -- for the Rangers as they try to turn things around.
