The Rangers have signed outfielder Josh Hamilton to a two-year extension worth 24 million dollars, according to's Jon Heyman. The Rangers successfully avoided arbitration with the slugger and extend the 30-year old the appropriate amount of years.

Hamilton hit .359 with 32 home runs and 100 RBIs in 133 games this past season. He has only passed the 500 at-bat threshold twice in his career, missing time to injuries otherwise. 

If he can stay healthy over the next two seasons, there is no reason to think the Rangers would not bring him back. He was in fact the AL MVP and dominated for much of the season.
