    Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Shin-Soo Choo, one of the most sought- after free agents this offseason, has found a suitor in the Texas Rangers.

    Choo and the Rangers agreed on a seven-year contract Friday, whose $130- million price tag was previously reported by CBSSports.com.

    Choo is coming off a season that saw him post a career-high .423 on-base percentage in 154 games for the Reds, whose $14.1 million qualifying offer was rejected by the outfielder.

    The Reds acquired Choo in a three-team trade last offseason, and he was productive out of the leadoff spot, hitting .285 with 21 home runs, 54 runs batted in and 20 steals.

    The 31-year-old South Korean has hit .288 over nine seasons with Seattle, Cleveland, and Cincinnati, totaling 104 home runs and 427 RBI with a .389 on- base-percentage.
