Four Rangers file for arbitration

Four Texas Rangers were among the 146 major leaguers to file for salary arbitration this year.

Pitchers Neftali Feliz, Neal Cotts and Alexi Ogando filed along with first baseman Mitch Moreland.

The sides have until Friday to exchange figures. If they can’t reach a deal, they will have their cases heard by an arbitrator next month.

The Rangers have a tremendous record of avoiding salary arbitration. The last Texas player to go to arbitration was Lee Stevens in 2000.

This marks the first time Ogando and Moreland have been eligible for arbitration.
