Shin-Soo Choo is officially a Texas Ranger, per reports on Twitter.

Choo has reportedly passed his physical, and the Rangers have called a press conference for tomorrow (Friday, December 27, 2013) at 2:30 Central to announce a "free agent signing."  All reports indicate this will be to introduce Choo.

The Rangers reached an agreement with Choo five days ago on a 7 year, $130 million contract, pending a physical, which wasn't able to take place until today.

Choo is expected to join Leonys Martin and Alex Rios as the team's starting outfielders for 2013, and early speculation is that he will be the team's leadoff hitter.
