Jacob deGrom says shared vision led to joining Rangers

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.
