Rangers Sign of Adolis García to Two-year Contract Covering 2024-25 Seasons

Agreement covers García’s first two years of arbitration eligibility

Arlington, Texas — The Texas Rangers today announced that the club has signed outfielder Adolis García to a two-year contract covering the 2024 and 2025 seasons. García had been eligible for arbitration for 2024.

“We are happy to reach this two-year agreement with Adolis,” said Rangers Executive Vice President & General Manager Chris Young. “He has been a very important part of our team the past few years and we are thrilled to have this resolved as we prepare for the start of Spring Training.”

In 2023, García was an American League All-Star, Gold Glove Award recipient, and All-MLB Second Team selection while posting career highs with 39 home runs, 107 RBI, and 65 walks. He batted .323 with 8 home runs and 22 RBI over 15 games in the Rangers’ 2023 World Series title run, setting a MLB record for most RBI in a single postseason. As part of that dominant postseason performance, he was tabbed as American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player following the Rangers’ 7-game triumph over the Houston Astros. He was also given the 2023 MLB Budweiser Legendary Moment Award for his walk-off home run in World Series Game 1 vs. Arizona.

The Cuban outfielder has combined to bat .244 with 97 home runs, 298 RBI, and 50 stolen bases in 456 games across his four seasons with Texas (2020-23) since being acquired from St. Louis in exchange for cash considerations on December 21, 2019. He joins teammate Marcus Semien (100 HR/54 SB) and LAD’s Shohei Ohtani (124 HR/57 SB) as the only Major League players with 90-or-more home runs and 50-or-more steals since the beginning of 2021, ranking among American League leaders over that same span in RBI (T6th), home runs (7th), extra-base hits (T8th), runs (9th, 273), and total bases (9th, 822). García originally signed with the Cardinals as a non-drafted free agent on February 24, 2017 following a brief stint with the Yomiuri Giants of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball.
