(Reuters) - The American League champion Texas Rangers and reliever Mark Lowe have agreed to a one-year, $1.7 million deal to avoid arbitration, the Major League Baseball team said on Tuesday.

The right-hander, 28, appeared in 52 games out of the bullpen for Texas last season, compiling a 2-3 record and 3.80 earned run average.

He was acquired by Texas in 2010 from Seattle where he spent four-plus seasons.
