The SportsXchange

Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus agreed to an eight-year, $120 million contract extension, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

Including the remaining two years on his current deal, Andrus is guaranteed more than $131 million over the next 10 years.

The contract is expected to be announced by the Rangers this week.

The extension could include an opt-out clause, according to MLB.com.

Andrus, 24, is starting the second year of a three-year, $14.4 million deal. He will make $4.8 million this year and $6,475,000 in 2014.

Andrus went 0-for-4 Sunday in the Rangers' 8-2, season-opening loss to the Houston Astros.

--The New York Mets announced that left-hander Johan Santana will have season-ending surgery on Tuesday.

The operation might end not only Santana's tenure with the Mets, but also his career. Santana re-tore the anterior capsule in his left shoulder. He also had the same surgery in 2010 and missed 19 months.

--The Los Angeles Dodgers placed pitchers Chad Billingsley (right index finger) and Ted Lilly (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list to start the season.

The moves are retroactive to March 22, and Billingsley might return to action with the Dodgers as soon as next week.

--Baltimore Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy was shut down after experiencing mild elbow tightness in his right arm.

"He's going to rest it for a few more days until it goes away, and we expect that to be in a couple of days and then at that point he would resume his throwing," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette told the Baltimore Sun.
