Free agent ace Jacob deGrom and the Texas Rangers agreed to a five-year contract on Friday.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner is leaving the New York Mets after nine seasons – the last two cut short by injuries.
After making his first start last season in early August, deGrom went 5-4 with a 3.08 ERA. He helped the Mets reach the playoffs, then opted out of his contract to become a free agent.
Texas announced the signing Friday night after deGrom, 34, passed his medical.
