    The Texas Rangers have extended their relationships with three of their five farm clubs.

    The Rangers agreed to a four-year extension with Double-A Frisco of the Texas League that will extend through the 2014 season. They've also extended their affiliations for two years with Low-A Hickory, N.C., of the South Atlantic League and Short Season A Spokane, Wash., of the Northwest League.

    Those affiliations will extend through 2012.

    Still unresolved is the future of Triple-A Oklahoma City of the Pacific Coast League and High-A Bakersfield of the California League in the Texas farm system.

    The PCL franchise in Round Rock, Texas, is now affiliated with the Houston Astros but co-owned by Rangers president and new co-owner Nolan Ryan. The Myrtle Beach, S.C., franchise in the High-A Carolina League is now affiliated with the Atlanta Braves but is owned by new Rangers co-owner and chief executive Chuck Greenberg.
