Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers announced this afternoon that the club has agreed to terms with right-handed pitchers Neftali Feliz and Alexi Ogando on one-year contracts for the 2014 season. No further terms were disclosed.

Feliz and Ogando had been eligible for salary arbitration. With their agreements, infielder/designated hitter Mitch Moreland is the only remaining Ranger eligible for salary arbitration.

Feliz made 6 appearances for the Rangers last season, throwing 4.2 scoreless innings after returning from Tommy John ligament replacement surgery on August 1, 2012. He also made 10 appearances for Toros del Este in the Dominican Winter League, going 1-1 with a 2.79 ERA (3 ER/9.2 IP), 2 walks, and 11 strikeouts.

Ogando had a 7-4 record and 3.11 ERA (36 ER/104.1 IP) over 23 games/18 starts with the Rangers in 2013, when he missed time with three stints on the disabled list. He compiled the 2nd-lowest ERA and opponents batting average (.231) among all Rangers pitchers with at least 80.0 innings last season.
