Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo at leadoff for a while?

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:48:16 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo will get a lengthy look at the leadoff spot, with OF Leonys Martin dropped in the order, according to manager Jeff Bannister. Martin was 5-for-26 (.192) on the team's homestand and hasn't walked in the last nine games. He has been dropped to eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) broke out of his long slump this weekend, and Texas hopes he can carry that momentum with him into the leadoff spot. Martin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to be avoided at FantasyScore, especially with his drop in the lineup. Both players are facing a tough left-handed starter tonight in Houston Astros starter Dallas Keuchel.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo leading off

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:08:11 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday, May 4. OF Leonys Martin was dropped to eighth in the order Monday.

Fantasy Tip: While Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) showed signs of life and broke out of a long slump over the weekend, he should be avoided against Keuchel tonight at FantasyScore. Martin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is hitting only .223 (23-for-103) with one home run and eight RBI on the year. He was a candidate to avoid already while slumping, and his drop in the order only cements that.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back in lineup

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:56:34 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is back in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was given several days off to work on some things after starting the year hitting .096 (5-for-52). A slow start says you should continue to avoid him at FantasyScore, and facing a difficult southpaw in Kazmir makes it a no-brainer.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo remains out

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:39:45 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. OF Carlos Peguero is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Choo is mired in a terrible slump to start the year and is likely receiving a couple days off to work on his swing mechanics and get his head right. Peguero ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is not an attractive option for FantasyScore users against King Felix tonight.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo in deep funk

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:30:55 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo hasn't recorded a hit in his last 20 at-bats, which has found him on the bench Tuesday, April 28. He also has the league's lowest batting average (.096). Manager Jeff Bannister said Choo will work with the team's hitting instructors and may have another day off Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: You should look to stay away from Choo at FantasyScore for the foreseeable future. The Rangers don't have great options to replace him in the outfield, though, with Delino DeShields ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) starting in right field Tuesday.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo riding pine

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:36:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a terrible start in 2015, hitting only .096 (5-for-52) with a home run and five RBI. In shallow mixed leagues, he's probably not worth a roster spot while he's struggling. Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just four hits in 36 at-bats on the season, and he's another weak FantasyScore play on this Tuesday night.

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.
