The Texas Rangers have signed free-agent shortstop Corey Seager. He has agreed to a 10-year, $325 million deal.
The deal was agreed to on Monday. However, was pending a physical before it became official.
The 27-year-old has agreed to the largest contract thus far in the free-agent cycle. The former World Series MVP spent the last seven seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He is now signed through the 2031 season. Seager is the second free agent to sign with the Rangers to help improve their infield.
Marcus Semien also signed with the Rangers. He is signed through the 2028 season.
Seager is expected to be the third batter in the Rangers lineup. Semien is projected to be the team’s No. 2 batter.
The revamped infield includes Nathaniel Lowe at first base, Semien at second base, Seager at shortstop, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa at third base.
This past season, Seager had a .306 batting average in 95 games. He had 16 home runs and 57 RBIs.
In his career, the two-time All-Star has appeared in 636 games. He has a .297 batting average with 104 home runs and 364 RBIs.
