The Texas Rangers acquired OF Michael Choice and INF Chris Bostick from the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for OF Craig Gentry and SP Josh Lindblom. Choice will be on the major league roster while Bostick has been assigned to Single-A Myrtle Beach. Choice was selected 10th overall in the 2010 draft by the Athletics and made his major league debut in September by going 5-for-18 (.278) in nine games. "Michael is a guy we followed in his amateur days literally down the block," general manager Jon Daniels said. "He has a chance to hit and hit for power, is athletic and can play all three outfield spots."

The Oakland Athletics acquired OF Craig Gentry from the Texas Rangers Tuesday, Dec. 2, in exchange for OF Michael Choice.
