The Texas Rangers have extended Adrian Beltre's contract through the 2016 season.
The extension is actually an amendment of the original contract Beltre signed on Jan. 5, 2011.
In that deal, the first five years and $80 million were guaranteed with an option in 2016 that could have paid Beltre $16 million if he hit specific incentives in plate appearances last year and/or in 2015.
Under the amendment announced Monday, Beltre is guaranteed $16 million this year and $18 million in 2016, according to a report.
Texas could have voided the final year if Beltre failed to reach the incentives.
