Report: Adrian Beltre to stick with Rangers through 2018

The Texas Rangers and Adrian Beltre have agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $18 million per year, according to MLB.com.

Beltre, 37, was set to become a free agent at the end of this season, when the six-year contract he signed in January 2011 expires.

Beltre has long been a priority for Texas.

“We would like Adrian to finish his career as a Ranger,” general manager Jon Daniels said last year.

Adrian Beltre Seeks Three-Year Deal From Rangers - MLB Trade Rumors

That’s a lot of money for a 37 year old, especially with Joey Gallo waiting. I guess we’ll see what the Rangers really think of Gallo.

Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is looking for a three-year deal in extension talks with the club, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports (Twitter links). He’s also hoping to out-earn Pablo Sandoval on an annual basis, per the report, which would suggest a deal with an average annual value in excess of $19MM. Presumably, that contract would kick in following the 2016 campaign, as Beltre is already guaranteed $18MM for the upcoming season.

Rangers notes: Adrian Beltre arrives healthy, ready to sign extension | The Star-Telegram

What, if anything, does this say about Joey Gallo?

Both the Rangers and Beltre have expressed a desire to add another year to his contract, which ends in October. It’s a move Beltre would prefer to see sooner rather than later.

“I don’t think anybody wants to go into a season [without one] if you can resolve it before, but I’ve been there before, I’ve done it,” he said. “I have no problem doing it, but it’s nice to know that you have a chance to get it done before the season starts and not have that in the back of your mind thinking you might not be here next year.”

Beltre doesn’t know how much longer he wants to play. He’s starting his 19th major league season. He’d be open to an incentive-laden deal that rewards him for games played and production, but he wants to remain an everyday player.

“I believe I can play pretty much most of the year, but once they get something done and there’s limitations, let me know and I will decide,” he said.

His age isn’t important, he said, but the Rangers have top prospect Joey Gallo waiting in the wings. And Beltre can’t play forever.
