Texas Rangers signed RHP Kohei Arihara

With rumors surrounding Tomoyuki Sugano, the Texas Rangers flew under-the-radar and signed Arihara to a two-year, $6 million deal.

Kohei Arihara brings another quality arm into the Rangers rotation, and features a repertoire of seven different pitches.

The 28-year old has great control of his pitches and attacks the strike zone, making him a great fit in between Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles in the Rangers rotation.

The Texas Rangers got a No. 3 pitcher in their rotation for $6 million in total. You can’t beat that deal.

Grade: B
