     Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder in what is being called a minor procedure that shouldn't affect his offseason training.

    The 37-year-old Choo is going into the final season of a $130 million, seven-year contract. His playing has been split between designated hitter and outfield the past three seasons.

    The team said Choo had surgery last week. General manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Choo should be recovered by spring training.

    Choo hit .265 with 24 homers and 61 RBIs in his sixth season with the Rangers and 15th in the majors. The 2018 All-Star is a career .275 hitter.
