Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo in deep slump

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:32:48 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is hitting .059 the last seven days and just .128 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of your cap) will heat up and the ball will fly as it warms up in Texas. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now, though.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland scratched Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:07:56 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland was scratched from the lineup Friday, April 17. 1B Adam Rosales will start at first base in his place and hit eighth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ. OF Shin-Soo Choo has been moved up to fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) already has a home run in a spot start this year and was successful against left-handers in 64 at-bats last year, with two of his four home runs coming against them. Rosales, however, remains a dice roll as a FantasyScore sleeper.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo moved down in order

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:17:07 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), like much of the Texas lineup, is off to a slow start in 2015. He's hitting just .182 (4-for-22) with one home run and three RBI. Consider Choo a weaker FantasyScore commodity tonight while being dropped in the order and while facing a southpaw. Choo hit only .236 with four of his 13 home runs against lefties in 2014 in 140 at-bats.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:41:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, April 15. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has fared very well against southpaws in his young career, hitting .400 against them with two of his three home runs in 25 at-bats. He's a leap of faith at FantasyScore today, but it could pay off against Santiago.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back in lineup

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:21:51 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) is returning to the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Monday, April 13. Choo is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is back in the lineup after suffering from back spasms in the game Friday night. You may want to avoid him for his first game back at FantasyScore. For what it's worth, Choo has a home run in six career at-bats against Shoemaker, but he also has three strikeouts.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo out Sunday

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 08:38:32 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) won't play Sunday, April 12, against the Houston Astros. Choo is continuing to receive treatment for back spasms, but isn't expected to require a stint on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is worth hanging on to in season-long leagues, but FantasyScore owners will need to stay away for the time being. RF Jake Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continues to fill in as the starting right fielder, but isn't a realistic FantasyScore option.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo improving

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 18:24:16 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo said Saturday, April 11, he's continuing to improve from the back spasms that knocked him out of the Rangers' home opener Friday, April 11. Choo has been 30-minute pulsating treatments and appears likely to avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) won't be rushed back into the lineup after last season's injury issues, but it doesn't seem like he'll miss too much time. League owners should hang on to him, while FantasyScore owners should avoid him until some positive results are seen on the field.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo leaves with back spasms

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:49:25 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) left the game after one at-bat against the Houston Astros Friday, April 10, because of back spasms in his upper back. He is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 6.0% of cap) had started the season well (two runs, one home run and three RBI) after a disastrous 2014 campaign. At 32, age and injury are likely to take their toll on the former five-category threat. Continue to check back for updates, but until Choo returns to the lineup and proves his health, it would be wise to avoid him in FantasyScore contests. Jake Smolinski could see the bulk of time in Choo's absence, but Smolinski hardly moves the fantasy needle.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo out of lineup

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 17:19:51 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (undisclosed) is not in the lineup Wednesday, April 8. Rangers manager Jeff Bannister indicated he'd like to get all his bench players in the mix early in the year.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) won't be helping FantasyScore gamers Wednesday night. Continue to use him in favorable matchups against right-handed pitchers, though, since it appears to be a standard rest night for Choo.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo battling triceps tightness

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:17:03 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (triceps) could be sidelined for several days because of tightness in his left triceps. According to assistant general manager Thad Levine, the injury is not serious and may have been caused by doing too much throwing. In a best-case scenario, Choo could be used as the designated hitter as soon as Sunday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: Choo could be available in the middle or later rounds of most universal fantasy drafts because of his recent injury history and disappointing numbers last season. If healthy, a 20-20 season isn't out of the question.
