The Rangers have been adamant about adding some starting pitching this offseason.
But today, deGrom finally arrived in Texas to make his new deal official.
The Rangers tweeted a video of his arrival, which features the veteran right-hander politely holding a door open before passing through himself.

deGrom Arrives In Texas
You can bet people in Texas are excited about the Rangers’ new addition.
deGrom has dealt with several injuries over the past few years, but returned to form in 2022 after being out with a shoulder issue, going 5-4 with a 3.08 ERA and pitching a gem in Game 2 of the National League Wild Card Series, helping the New York Mets force a deciding Game 3 against the San Diego Padres.
But the Rangers had been lacking an ace at the top of their rotation.
That wasn’t enough for them to avoid losing 94 games, however.
Now, the Rangers have both deGrom and Perez at the top of their starting rotation and appear ready to make some noise in the AL West for the first time since 2016.
It all starts with deGrom.
