has reached an agreement with the Texas Rangers for the 2009 season and so avoids arbitration. The terms weren't announced but Jamey Newberg said that as a part of his contract he would donate a sum to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation. The Rnagers have settled all their arbitration since Lee Stevens in 2000. The Rangers have only one case left with Marlon Byrd. Also the signiging of Melhuse may be precedent to trading one of our catchers to NY or Bos.
