Report: Rangers agree to 2-year deal with Jesse Chavez The Texas Rangers have reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with right-handed reliever Jesse Chavez, sources told Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. The deal is thought to be in the $8-million range, according to Passan. This will be Chavez's second stint with the Rangers. He joined them last season on a one-year contract and pitched well over a 30-game stretch before being traded to the Chicago Cubs for pitching prospect Tyler Thomas. Chavez is coming off the best year of his career. In 95 1/3 total innings, all of them in relief, he posted a 2.55 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 92 strikeouts to just 17 walks, while averaging a personal-best 1.6 walks per nine innings.
