Rangers add year to manager's deal

Posted:

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington finally has a contract past this season.

General manager Jon Daniels said Monday that the Rangers have added a year to Washington's contract through 2015. Washington is the team's winningest manager with 611 wins over seven seasons, and led Texas to its only two World Series appearances.

The Rangers had last extended Washington's contract in January 2012, when two years were added through 2014.

Asked what took long to get this new deal done, Daniels said mostly because there was never any question about whether Washington would get an extension.

Only three managers have been with their current teams longer than Washington. They are Mike Scioscia of the Los Angeles Angels, Minnesota's Ron Gardenhire and Tampa Bay's Joe Maddon.
