Worth noting

• The Rangers have designated first baseman Chris McGuiness for assignment to make room for Choo on the 40-man roster. McGuiness played in 10 games for the Rangers this past season and hit .176 with no home runs and one RBI.

• The Rangers talked earlier this offseason about giving Leonys Martin a chance to win the leadoff job. But manager Ron Washington said Choo will be his leadoff hitter, giving Martin more time to develop at the bottom of the order.

• Boras represents the top four hitters in the Rangers' lineup: Choo, Andrus, Fielder and Adrian Beltre. Said Boras, "The Fearsome Foursome. This is the first Fearsome Foursome ever in Texas."
