The Rangers and Eric Gagne have agreed to a one year deal, worth about 6 million dollars. The former Cy Young Winner has only appeared in 16 games over the past two years. However, the Rangers have reviewed his medical records and believe he can return to 2003 form. Gagne will either be used as an eighth inning setup man before Otsuka, or he will be their new closer. He had 158 saves between 2002-04.
