    Free-agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo has reached agreement on a seven-year, $130 million contract with the Texas Rangers, two baseball sources confirmed to ESPN.com.

    Choo, who must pass a physical before the deal is complete, according to a source, was the premier offensive player left on the market after Robinson Cano signed with Seattle and Jacoby Ellsbury went to the New York Yankees.

    The deal doesn't include an opt-out clause, the source said. But it does include a limited no-trade provision and performance bonus package.
