According to ESPNDallas.com, Nelson Cruz and the Texas Rangers have agreed to a two-year deal worth $16 million today. The agreement also includes a signing bonus along with $500,000 in incentives.

Cruz, 31, is coming off a solid season last year with the World Series runner-ups, as he hit .263 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs.

Cruz was also the ALCS MVP after his big performance to knock off the Detroit Tigers, where he had a record six home runs and 13 RBIs.

"I'd like to be a Ranger for life," Cruz said last week during the Caribbean World Series in the Dominican Republic. "I like the city, the team and the fans. Arlington is my second home."
