Rangers to talk contract extension with Ryan's agent

March 04, 1991

Nolan Ryan's agent said he expects to visit the Texas Rangers spring-training camp this week to discuss a contract extension that would bring the major leagues' all-time strikeout leader back in 1992.

Dick Moss, Ryan's agent, and Rangers general manager Tom Grieve worked out a deal during last year's training camp for Ryan, 44, to receive $3.3 million this year, his third with the club.

Moss said: "It's something of a spring-training tradition for me to get together with Tom and discuss what's next for Nolan. I told Tom last year, 'We'll probably still be doing this 20 years from now and still talking about how well he's performing.' "

* MARINERS: Outfielder Ken Griffey Sr. was hurt in a car accident in Arizona and will be out indefinitely with neck and lower-back injuries.

* GIANTS: Right-hander Rick Reuschel, who had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee July 9, had some swelling in the knee after throwing for 15 minutes and will have it drained.
