The Texas Rangers are still at it. And in a big way.

The team has agree to terms with shortstop Corey Seager on a 10-year, $325 million deal, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The deal would make Seager one of the highest paid players in the league.

On Sunday, the Rangers signed infielder Marcus Semien, right-handed pitcher Jon Gray, and outfielder Kole Calhoun.

None of the deals have been officially announced by the club.

Seager, 27, his .306 with 16 home runs, 22 doubles and 57 RBIs in 95 games in 2021, his seventh season for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Seager was the 18th overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft.

 

He’s a career .297 hitter with .870 OPS in his seven seasons.

With the four acquisitions, the Rangers have committed more than $560 million. It’s more than twice the second-closest team, the Mets, who have spent more than $250 million.

The Rangers are the first team to commit to half a billion dollars in a single season on two or fewer players, according to ESPN Stats and Info.

Semien’s seven-year deal is worth $175 million, according to multiple reports.

Semien, who played shorstop during his season seasons with the Athletics, played primarily at second base for the Blue Jays in 2021.

With Seager joining the roster, Semien is likely to be the Rangers primary second baseman in 2022.
