HOUSTON (CBS SPORTS) — The Rangers and Elvis Andrus have a deal on a $120 million, eight-year extension that will bring Andrus’ commitment to $131 million over 10 years.

The sides hammered out the agreement during the past couple days.

Andrus’ total guarantee will be precisely $131.275 million over 10 years, including the $11.275 million he had left on his three-year deal through 2014. He would have been a free agent after ’14.

The deal is expected to be announced sometime this week.

The extension might include an opt-out clause, MLB.com reported.
