    Shortstop Elvis Andrus is among six players who have agreed to terms on 2011 contracts with the Texas Rangers.

    Andrus, an All-Star last season after being runner-up for AL rookie of the year in 2009, got a $452,180 contract for this season.

    The Rangers also reached deals Saturday with utility infielder Andres Blanco ($520,000), outfielder Craig Gentry ($416,000) and right-handers Omar Beltre ($415,000), Eric Hurley ($415,000) and Alexi Ogando ($430,150).

    Right-hander Pedro Strop is the only player on the team's 40-man roster who has not yet signed a 2011 contract. The Rangers play their spring training opener Sunday.
