The following is a news release from the Texas Rangers.

The Texas Rangers today announced that four players have agreed to terms on one-year contracts for the 2013 season. No further terms were disclosed.

The four are pitcher Josh Lindblom and outfielders Engel Beltre, Julio Borbon, and Craig Gentry. All 40 players on the major league roster are now under contract for 2013.
