The Texas Rangers and designated hitter Mike Napoli agreed to a one-year deal, reported Tuesday.

Napoli played for the American League champion Cleveland Indians and had one helluva season. Napoli hit 34 home runs with 101 RBI. He also batted .239/.335/.465 in 150 games.

This will be Napoli’s third stint with the Rangers. The 35-year-old spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons in Texas and was named an all-star in the 2012 season. He was then traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Rangers in August 2015 before he left to sign in Cleveland.
