Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo goes back on DL

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:26:13 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (hamstring) went back on the disabled list Monday, May 23. He strained his left hamstring while running the bases in his first game back from a previous DL stint Friday, May 20, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Choo has had some injury issues in recent years and it's only gotten worse in 2016, as his first extended stint on the sidelines lasted 40 days. Hopefully his latest trip to the DL won't last as long, but it's still troubling to see him getting banged up so often. Jared Hoying was called up for the first time to take his spot, and has some potential in deeper leagues based on his solid start at Class AAA. Ryan Rua benefits, too.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back to DL?

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:16:59 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (hamstring) may be headed for the 15-day disabled list in the next several days, as the team is taking a conservative approach with Choo's injury.

Fantasy Tip: The decision to disable Choo will come down to whether or not Rougned Odor is suspended for the full eight games. Odor will have his appeal hearing early in the week. The team does not want to have a 23-man roster for several games and would rather lose one player at a time. As for Choo's fantasy status, right now it is hampered because of his injury history.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back and leading off

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:22:57 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (calf) was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is back in the starting lineup hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Friday, May 20. As a result, 2B Rougned Odor moves down to fifth in the batting order, and OF Nomar Mazara is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: So Choo's return pushes both Odor and Mazara down in the order, which hurts their fantasy value a tad. The good thing for Mazara owners is that he won't lose any playing time at all with Choo's activation, and the rookie remains a midrange outfielder in all formats. Choo should be returned to starting lineups everywhere. He can deliver somewhere around 20 home runs and decent counting stats across the board.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo activated

Fri, 20 May 2016 10:39:45 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (calf) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: If Choo is in the lineup Friday, he'll face Lance McCullers, who struggled in his first start off the disabled list. Choo would be a lower-middle option in DFS.
