ARLINGTON, Tex. -- The Texas Rangers agreed to terms on a one- year contract with catcher Matt Treanor on Monday.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We appreciated the qualities that Matt brought to our club in 2010, both on the field and the presence he had in our clubhouse," said Rangers general manager Jon Daniels. "He stepped into a challenging situation and helped lead the club. We're happy to have him back to solidify our catching situation."

The 34-year-old Treanor came to Texas in a trade with Milwaukee in March and appeared in 82 games -- 67 starts -- while hitting .211 with five homers and 27 runs batted in for the American League champion Rangers.

Treanor also had two hits in 10 postseason at-bats with one home run and two RBI over four starts.

In other news, the club announced right-handed pitcher Ryan Tucker cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.
