Texas Rangers sign 4th rounder Cody Freeman, per report

Jim Callis reports that the Rangers have signed 4th round pick Cody Freeman to a significantly over-slot deal

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Rangers 2019 MLB Draft 4th round pick Cody Freeman has signed with the Rangers, per Jim Callis on Twitter. Callis says Freeman receives $900,000, significantly more than the $502,300 slot that was associated with that pick. Texas signed several players already to below-slot deals, which would allow them to go above-slot for Freeman.

Freeman is a 5’10”, 165 lb. righthanded hitting shortstop from Rancho Cucamonga, California. A high schooler, Freeman was ranked #146 on the Baseball America top 500 rankings, and was committed to Baylor. He gets praise for his instincts, speed and advanced approach at the plate.
