The Texas Rangers agreed to a one-year, $1.8 million deal with free-agent C J.P. Arencibia (Blue Jays) Friday, Dec. 6. Incentives could push the total of the deal to $2.1 million.
Fantasy Tip: Arencibia will serve as the backup to Geovany Soto. Arencibia's power should play nicely in Texas, but you'll have to struggle with his poor batting average and limited playing time, too.
