Columnist Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News passes along the season-by-season financial breakdown of Elvis Andrus‘ new three-year, $14.4 million contract extension with the Rangers:

2012: $2.375 million
2013: $4.8 million
2014: $6.475 million

The agreement, which also comes with a $750,000 signing bonus, covers Andrus through all three of his years of arbitration eligibility. He can test the free agent market in the winter of 2014 if not re-upped.

Andrus, 23, batted .279/.347/.361 with 60 RBI and 37 stolen bases in 150 games last season.

    The terms seem very team friendly. I definitely agree that a player should take the security of guaranteed money, but I’d imagine Andrus would get more going year to year.

    Seems like a crazy bargain. Why not go to arbitration?
