Rangers Sign Jason Jennings

UPDATE, 1-16-08 at 10:39pm: ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rangers have reached an agreement with Jennings for one year and $4MM.  Another $4MM is possible in incentives.  I like the price, and I wonder if this was one of those hometown discount situations.

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Rangers "appear to be closing in on" a deal with Jason Jennings.  Grant says the last hurdle before a deal is struck with the 29 year-old might be a physical.  Terms are not yet known.  The Dallas native earned $5.5MM in 2007.

Jennings had surgery in late August to repair a torn flexor tendon in his elbow.  He expects to be throwing by March 1st.
