General manager Jon Daniels and the Rangers are on the verge of announcing a multi-year contract extension, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.
Rangers president Nolan Ryan called an extension for Daniels a “priority” earlier in the offseason and Grant reports that the deal could become official as soon as today.
Daniels, who took over as GM in 2006 and hired Ron Washington a year later, has come under fire recently for his handling of the Michael Young situation, but under his watch the team’s win total has improved in three straight seasons and last year the Rangers made the playoffs for the first time since 1999, winning the American League before losing to the Giants in the World Series.
