Arencibia on a deal that would make him the team's backup catcher, a source confirmed late Thursday night. Arencibia played in 138 games last year for Toronto. Arencibia was arbitration-eligible this offseason, but the Blue Jays decided not to tender him a contract, making a free agent. Arencibia must pass a physical for anything to become official and the icy weather in the Dallas-Fort Worth area could delay that. The Texas Rangers have agreed to terms with free-agent catcher J.P. He hit just .194 and his .227 on-base percentage would have been the lowest in the big leagues, but he didn't have enough at-bats to qualify.
