Rangers, Napoli reach agreement on contract

The Texas Rangers and catcher Mike Napoli year contract for the 2012 season, thus avoiding arbitration.

The Dallas Morning News reported Napoli will make $9.4 million for next season. He was requesting $11.5 million, while the Rangers were offering $8.3 million. He was slated for a hearing on Wednesday.

Napoli, who could become a free agent following the 2012 season, batted .320 with 30 homers and 75 runs batted in, all career-bests in 2011. He played in 113 games.
