Corey Seager signs a 10-year, $325 million deal with the Texas Rangers.

In less than 24 hours, the Texas Rangers took two of the top shortstops off the market.

On Monday, the Rangers and Corey Seager have agreed to a 10-year, $325 million deal.

24 hours earlier, the Rangers were on a spending spree and landed Toronto Blue Jays infielder Marcus Semien to a seven year, $175 million deal.

They also signed Colorado Rockies starter Jon Gray to a four-year, $56 million deal as well.

Seager is the former 2020 NLCS and World Series MVP and considered one of the top shortstops on the market with Carlos Correa.

Despite playing in just 95 games for the Dodgers, the 27-year-old Seager hit .306 with 16 home runs and 57 RBI in 2021.
