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.
