According to a report, the Texas Rangers have reached a deal with free agent catcher JP Arencibia.

CBS Sports Ken Rosenthal reports the deal is worth $1.8 million with incentives that could push the deal to $2.1 million.

The 27-year-old Arencibia became a free agent on Monday night when the Toronto Blue Jays non-tendered the former Tennessee Volunteer after a disappointing 2013 season and signed Dioner Navarro to a two-year, $8 million deal.

In 138 games last season, Arencibia had 21 home runs and 55 runs batted in, but struggled mightily at the plate, hitting just .194 with a .227 OBP. Arencibia's failings weren't limited to offensive ones, as he also finished second-last in fielding percentage among American League catchers.

The Rangers incumbent starting catcher, AJ Pierzynski, left the team earlier in the week to sign with the Boston Red Sox.
