(Reuters) - South Korean free agent outfielder Choo Shin-soo has agreed to a seven-year contract with the Texas Rangers, who were looking for more power at the plate, Major League Baseball's website said on Saturday.
The deal, which has not been confirmed by the Rangers, is worth about $130 million, according to Texas media. It is subject to Choo passing a physical.
Texas beat out the New York Yankees for the sought-after outfielder, who could be introduced as a Ranger next week, the Dallas Morning News reported.
