Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo has moved back to the leadoff spot Friday, June 27.
Fantasy Tip: He had been hitting third for the last few weeks. He has hit better from the top spot (.269 BA, .813 OPS) than third (.193, .598) in 2014, and this could get him back in the groove as he works his ankle and bat back into health.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington prefers using OF Shin-Soo Choo as his leadoff hitter, even though he had posted a higher on-base percentage and slugging percentage during a recent stretch where he had batted third. "He makes the pitcher work, which is what a leadoff guy is supposed to do," Washington said. "He can hit with two strikes, which is what a leadoff guy is supposed to do. He can get you one run with one swing of the bat, which you hope you have that kind of guy in the leadoff spot. But more than anything else, I think he forces pitchers to show what they have or what they don't have because he's not chasing. To use his quote, he said he's very aggressive, but only on strikes." 1B Mitch Moreland batted third Saturday, May 24, with Choo occupying the leadoff spot.
