Japanese ace Yu Darvish will be pitching in a Rangers uniform in 2012, agreeing to a six-year deal worth approximately $60M on Wednesday.

Darvish agreed to the deal, which includes a player option for the sixth year, just before Wednesday's 5 p.m. ET deadline.

The agreement comes 30 days after the Rangers won the right to negotiate with Darvish and his representatives, Don Nomura and Arn Tellem, by submitting a record $51.7M posting bid.
