Rangers reach 1-year deals with all 5 arb-eligible players

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rangers catcher Mitch Garver has avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $3.9 million contract, after Texas also struck one-year deals earlier in the day with first baseman Nathaniel Lowe and pitchers Taylor Hearn, Jonathan Hernández and Brett Martin. Lowe gets $4.05 million, Hearn $1,462,500, Martin $1,275,000 and Hernandez $995,000. Garver missed the final three months last season after undergoing surgery on the flexor tendon in his throwing arm. Martin is set for left shoulder surgery and could miss the 2023 season.
