Latest Update Rangers optioned outfielder and designated hitter Michael Choice to Triple-A Round Rock Mon Jul, 07, 04:15 PM
Has excellent power to all fields. Is a good run producer who can also run the bases well. Plays smooth outfield defense, with enough range to cover the ground in center field.
Flaws: : Has trouble laying off tough breaking pitches. Therefore, he is prone to striking out a bit too much. Doesn't have a great arm in the outfield. Also doesn't steal a lot of bases.
With a .177/.247/.318 slash line, eight home runs, 28 RBI, 16 runs scored, and one steal in 198 at-bats, it's time to say goodbye to Choice who basically blew his opportunity here. With the injuries to Prince Fielder and Mitch Morleand, Choice could have been the regular DH or possible first baseman but just couldn't find any consistency at the plate. He'll try to get back on-track in Triple-A but who knows how long it would take him to make it back.Analyst: Howard Bender
Choice was ejected for arguing balls and strikes with the ball game tied at two runs apiece after the the top half of the 10th inning. He finished the game going 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. He was replaced in right field by Dan Robertson.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Starting in his first game since last Friday, Choice made the most of his opportunity, logging his seventh home run of the season. Although he has been a solid source of power when in the starting lineup, Choice is batting just .196 through 158 at-bats, making him a fringe fantasy option outside of AL-only leagues when seeing regular at-bats.

Choice has now homered and driven-in two runs in back-to-back games as he continues to be productive when given the opportunity. However if his playing time is sporadic moving forward, it is hard to make him a quality fantasy add outside of AL-only leagues as the season progresses. Analyst: Matthew Beck
