Feliz among 8 who sign 2011 contracts with Texas

The Texas Rangers have agreed to terms on
2011 contracts with record-setting closer Neftali Feliz, outfielder
Julio Borbon and six other players.
Borbon, who hit .276 with 15 stolen bases in 137 games last
season, signed the biggest contract Thursday at $490,000.
Feliz gets $457,160 after being the AL Rookie of the Year last
season, when his 40 saves were a major league rookie record. The
hard-throwing righty is getting a chance this spring to be a
starter for the AL champions.
Left-handers Derek Holland ($431,810) and Michael Kirkman
($423,000) also signed. Outfielder Engle Beltre, left-handers
Miguel De Los Santos and Zach Phillips and righty Mason Tobin all
get the $414,000 major league minimum.
