For the 23rd year in a row, the Texas Rangers will not be going to arbitration with any of their arbitration-eligible players.
We discussed yesterday that the Rangers had reached agreements with four of their five arb-eligible players. Late last night, the Rangers also reached an agreement with catcher Mitch Garver, settling with him for $3.9 million for 2023. Interestingly, all five players ended up settling for slightly less than what MLB Trade Rumors had projected for them — Garver, for example, was projected at $4.2 million.
With the arbitration deals done, the Rangers have just under $180 million committed in current contracts for the 2023 season.
