According to MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers and closer Frank Francisco avoided arbitration Tuesday by agreeing to a $3.265 million contract for the 2010 season.
Francisco requested $3.6 million from the Rangers and was offered $3 million when
arbitration figures were exchanged last week. He had an impressive 1.11 WHIP and 57/15 K/BB ratio last season while collecting 25 saves, but the right-hander did struggle to stay healthy. C.J. Wilson may be breathing down his neck this season if the injury bug bites again.
Right-hander Scott Feldman is the only remaining unsigned arbitration-eligible Ranger.
