Rangers welcome Yu to Texas

Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers have reached a deadline deal.
The two-time defending American League champion Rangers and the
25-year-old Darvish, who is considered Japan's best pitcher, came
to an agreement on a $60 million, six-year deal Wednesday just
before the end of a 30-day negotiating window.
Had the deal not been reached, Darvish would have returned to
the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan's Pacific League. And the
Rangers would have kept the record $51.7 million posting fee that
was required for the exclusive rights to negotiate with Darvish.
Darvish had a 93-38 record with a 1.99 ERA the past seven
seasons in Japan. The 6-foot-5 right-hander was a two-time Pacific
League MVP and a five-time All-Star.
