The Texas Rangers have avoided arbitration with relief pitcher Mike Adams, agreeing to a one year deal worth $4.4 million.

Adams came over from San Diego last July in exchange for minor league starting pitchers Robbie Erlin and Joe Wieland, and acted as the primary eighth inning setup man for closer Neftali Feliz. Adams is expected to fill a similar role this season in front of newly signed closer Joe Nathan.

Adams, a native of Corpus Christi, Texas, has been one of the top relievers in baseball over the past four years, and put up a 2.10 ERA in 25.2 innings with Texas after coming over from San Diego.

Adams is in his final year of arbitration eligibility, and will be a free agent after the 2012 season.
