Ron Washington will likely get a contract extension on Thursday, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan writes .
The Rangers manager is expected to meet with club president Nolan Ryan and general manager Jon Daniels on Thursday.
"Ron is ready to go home to New Orleans," Ryan told Sullivan. "Wed like to put it to bed before that."
That must be a nice starting point in negations for Washington, whose contract ran through this season.
Daniels is also expected to get a new deal.
"I expect them both to be back," Ryan said. "I don't see any issues. We're set up to talk to Ron tomorrow morning. J.D. and I have had a brief discussion and we agreed to wait on him until the playoffs were over. I don't see any issues with J.D. either."
