Latest Update Choo admits he made "bad decision" on his ankle Mon Jul, 21, 07:20 PM
A well-rounded talent, he boasts a nice line-drive bat with great patience, above-average power, some speed and a very good outfield arm.
Flaws: : Sometimes, he strikes out far too much for a player with his skill set. Can also be a bit too streaky with the bat. Injuries are also a concern.
This is the risk when players downplay their injury status, a season-long series of problems and absences from the lineup. No player wants to replicate Wally Pipp, but at times discretion is the better part of valor, as Falstaff himself once noted.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Choo has been in a terrible slump and a career worst 0-for-21 hitless streak. He is only batting .236/.354/.367 over 92 games this season. The early season ankle injury has really hampered him all season long but not exactly what the Rangers were expecting when they signed him to a seven-year contract.Analyst: Drew Phelps
Rangers manager Ron Washington said that he wanted to keep Choo off the turf in Toronto as much as possible and true to his word, Choo is on the bench Sunday, not even acting as the DH. Of course, he's also 0-for-8 in his last two games, so perhaps it's not just about protecting his bum ankle. Jake Smolinksi will start in left field Sunday with Adrian Beltre serving as the DH.Analyst: Howard Bender
The start of the second half has not gone the way Choo would have wanted it to go (0-for-8), so a day off for the Rangers struggling outfielder should not come as a surprise. Although he continues to hold down a solid on-base percentage (.354 OBP), his production is a far cry from what fantasy owners expected in his first year with the Rangers,so hopefully a day off to clear his head will be just the right ticket.
