Rangers GM Jon Daniels agreed to a four-year contract extension through the 2015 season.
“I am appreciative of the faith that ownership has shown in our baseball leadership group,” commented Daniels in a statement, who is in his sixth year as Rangers General Manager. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished to this point, but clearly we have more work to do to reach our ultimate goal. Keeping our baseball operations group together is a huge step towards that end.”
Daniels joined Texas in 2002 as a baseball operations assistant. He was pomoted as the Rangers' Genermal Manger in 2003.
“Jon and his baseball operations group have done an outstanding job in building an organization that will allow the Rangers to contend for postseason play year in and year out," said club President Nolan Ryan. "The efforts in scouting and player development as well as sound decisions on the major league level have put our franchise in a good position. We look forward to Jon leading our baseball operation for many years to come.”
