ARLINGTON (Sports Network) – The Texas Rangers agreed to terms with pitcher Matt Harrison on a one-year contract Tuesday, avoiding arbitration.
Harrison went 14-9 with a 3.39 earned run average in 31 appearances — 30 starts — for the Rangers last season, ranking third on the team in wins and second in quality starts (20).
The 26-year-old left-hander has spent his whole major league career with Texas after being acquired from the Atlanta Braves in a multi-player deal in 2007.
He has a career record of 30-19 with a 4.49 ERA, three complete games and two saves through 94 games with 62 starts for the Rangers.

1Great Analysis. I love when a game ends and reading points like these.
The Saints and Packers seemed to possess the two highest-powered offenses in the league entering the divisional round of the playoffs.
And one area of the field that every high-flying offense loves to attack is the seam. However, when the Giants and 49ers walked off the field last weekend and into the NFC Championship Game, they had won on the scoreboard – and down the seam. But why?
If you watch the Packers’ offense on film, you’ll see that they rotate all of their receivers — Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley — into the slot to put them into a position to be a quick-strike threat for QB Aaron Rodgers.
