Texas Rangers sign ace Jacob deGrom to $185M, 5-year deal

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Jacob deGrom is headed to the free-spending Texas Rangers, who believe the health risk is worth the potential reward in trying to end a six-year run of losing.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner agreed to a $185 million, five-year contract Friday, leaving the New York Mets after nine seasons - the past two shortened substantially by injuries.

"We acknowledge the risk, but we also acknowledge that in order to get great players, there is a risk and a cost associated with that," Rangers general manager Chris Young said. "And one we feel like is worth taking with a player of Jacob's caliber."
