According to a tweet by FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Rangers and Elvis Andrus are “close” to an agreement on an eight-year contract worth $120 million.

Nobody, associated with the Rangers or Andrus’ agent, Scott Boras, has confirmed that a deal is close.

General manager Jon Daniels said earlier Sunday when asked about the possibility of extensions that the club generally doesn’t like to negotiate in season, but doesn’t have an expressed rule against it. Boras declined to comment.

Andrus, 24, is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2014 season and the Rangers did approach Boras about a deal over the winter. Those talks, however, didn’t appear to get much traction. The Rangers prefer to talk about extensions during spring training rather than the offseason.

Under his current deal, Andrus will earn $11.275 million in 2013-14. Miami gave free-agent shortstop Jose Reyes a six-year, $106 million deal after the 2011 season. The Marlins traded Reyes to Toronto after the season.
