Mitch Moreland and the Texas Rangers have agreed on a one year contract worth $2.95M, with another $25,000 in incentives, per John Blake on Twitter.  Moreland had asked for $3.35M, and the Rangers had offered $2.75M.

Also in the transaction news, Blake tweeted that Gonzalez Germen, designated for assignment when the Rangers traded for Carlos Corporan, has been claimed on waivers by the Cubs.  Germen had been acquired just a few days earlier by the Rangers from the Yankees.

Finally, the Rangers have signed 32 year old righthanded pitcher Ross Ohlendorf to a minor league deal.  Ohlendorf was a 4th round pick of the Diamondbacks out of Princeton in the 2004 draft, and has pitched in the majors with the Yankees, Pirates, Padres and Nationals.
