The Rangers on Friday announced a contract extension for manager Chris Woodward.
The sides reached terms on a deal that will keep Woodward in Texas through 2023, with a club option for a 2024, the team announced on social media.
Woodward's original three-year contract was signed in November 2018 and included a one-year option for '22, which the team exercised last spring.
The new one-year extension and option essentially preclude a potential "lame-duck" situation, as Woodward enters what would have been the final year of the old deal.
The 44-year-old former journeyman infielder won 78 games in 2019, his first season on the bench, but the team slumped to 60 wins in 2021 amid a rebuild.
