Rumors are floating around that the Texas Rangers and shortstop Elvis Andrus have agreed to a three year contract. The contract would keep Andrus in Texas until at least the 2014 season.

The agreement comes just two days before a scheduled arbitration hearing. Andrus has been one of the bright spots for the Rangers defense lately, although his bat isn't quite where GM Jon Daniels and Nolan Ryan would like it. Andrus hit a respectable .279, but had only 5 home runs in nearly 600 at bats.

It is currently unknown how much the Rangers will being paying Andrus, but it is a good sign for Rangers fans that he will be with the Rangers in the coming years.
