Gentry, Moreland among eight who agree to Rangers deal
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Craig Gentry, a candidate to be the Rangers' starting center fielder, and first baseman Mitch Moreland are among the last eight players who have agreed to 2012 contracts with Texas.
With the deals announced Thursday, the two-time defending American League champions have every player on their 40-man roster under contract.
Moreland, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist in November, got a $491,100 deal. He was bothered by wrist soreness much of last season after hitting .462 in the 2010 World Series as a rookie.
Gentry, who hit .271 in 133 at-bats and was 18-of-18 on stolen bases last season, gets $484,300.
