Coming off a fantastic season where he posted a 1.11 ERA in 57.0 innings despite not making his first appearance until May 21st, Neal Cotts and the Texas Rangers have agreed to terms to avoid arbitration.

Cotts hadn't appeared in a major league game since 2009 after struggling for several seasons with multiple injuries and setbacks.  His 375 ERA+ was the highest in a season for any Rangers pitcher with at least 50 innings in franchise history.

Ken Rosenthal had a nice article on Cotts in May when he was called up.
