Rangers reportedly looking at Choo, not Ellsbury

Jon Heyman reports the Rangers are “considering a run at” outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and have ruled out the possibility of signing fellow outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury

Texas is preparing to replace the offense provided by Nelson Cruz, but would only be able to pursue Choo if the price is right, Heyman says. Reportedly Choo will be seeking contracts in the ballpark of Jayson Werth’s and Carl Crawford’s. 

Part of the reason why the Rangers aren’t as interested in Ellsbury, Heyman says, is because they’re pleased with the job rookie Leonys Martin has done. The Reds, Yankees and Mets have also shown an interest in Choo.
