Is Shin-Soo Choo Bigger Texas Rangers Gain or Cincinnati Reds Loss?
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

When the Cincinnati Reds and the Texas Rangers meet on Monday, all eyes will be on outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.

Several teams were in on the free agent. The Reds had interest in bringing him back, but his price tag was too steep. Eventually, via CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Choo signed a seven-year deal worth $130 million with the Rangers.

The 31-year-old's signing shook the baseball world and created a few questions. Is Cincinnati still a legitimate contender without Choo? Is Texas now the team to beat in the American League?

Those questions won't be answered when the two squads meet in Arizona on Monday, but the spring training game will give fans a glimpse of how both sides are adjusting to their new looks.

Let's take a look at which side was impacted the most by Choo leaving Cincinnati for Texas in the offseason.
