Cotts, Rangers Reach 1-Year Deal for $2.2M



    Left-hander Neal Cotts and the Texas Rangers have reached a one-year deal worth $2.2 million.

    The 33-year-old Cotts had been eligible for salary arbitration before Wednesday's agreement.

    Cotts was 8-3 with a 1.11 ERA in 58 games last season. He struck out 65 in 57 innings.

    Cotts began the season at Triple-A before being promoted on May 21 for his first big league action since 2009. He was out in 2010 and 2011 because of injuries.

    He is 18-15 with a 3.99 ERA in 342 games with the Chicago White Sox, Cubs and Rangers.
