Rangers extend GM Daniels

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have given general manager Jon Daniels a multiyear contract extension.

Daniels' contract had been scheduled to expire at the end of this season.

He is in his 13th season as GM, and he also the title of president of baseball operations.

When Daniels replaced Jon Hart at the end of the 2005 season, he was 28 and the youngest GM in baseball. Daniels turns 41 on Aug. 24.

Texas missed the playoffs last season and was 27-37 going into Thursday night's home game against defending World Series champion Houston. But the Rangers have been to their only two World Series during Daniels' time as GM, and won four AL West titles.

Daniels got an extension after the 2014 season that went through 2018.
