Texas Rangers met with Boston Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo about manager's job.

Lovullo has been linked to both the Rangers and the Twins, but there hasn't been any movement towards either team as of yet. Just last year, Lovullo was linked the Cubs' managerial opening, but didn't end up getting the job. He seems like a good bet to finally become a major league skipper within the next month or so.

Shin-Soo Choo had torn cartilage and a small bone spur removed from his left ankle. He should be good to go in six to eight weeks.

Choo is nothing more than a mid-round draft choice next season. His declining numbers, his declining health and his inability to hit lefties make him a risky play. Perhaps a do-over in Texas will help him, but he's no longer a player you can wholeheartedly trust.

Shin-Soo Choo will have surgery to repair torn cartilage in left ankle.

Choo has been one of the biggest fantasy busts of the season and did not gain any fans this season because of his lack of production and multiple injuries he acquired throughout the season.

Rangers transferred Shin-Soo Choo to the 60-day disabled list.

Just a procedural move as Choo's season is already over. The Rangers will be able to add another body to their 40-man roster now.

Shin- Soo Choo will have elbow surgery Friday to remove bone spur.

Choo's season was cut short due to the problems stemming from the elbow issue. Not that it was such a great season anyway as an ankle injury hindered his performance as well. He joins a long line of Texas Rangers who have disappointed fantasy owners this year.

Rangers placed Shin-Soo Choo on the 15-day disabled list with a bone spur in his left elbow. He is done for the season.

Not like he was lighting it up for the Rangers, but this is just another nail in the coffin for the Texas 2014 season. With the bone spurs removed now, Choo should be good to go next season.

Shin-Soo Choo is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Monday.

This is the second straight game Choo has missed because he is not hitting well and is dealing with a minor injury. Fantasy owners should start someone else in weekly leagues.

Shin-Soo Choo was held out of Sunday's lineup with an illness.

Foo Man Choo has been a major fantasy disappointment this season and continued that disappointment by sitting out Sunday's game. Consider him day-to-day, unless we hear otherwise.

Yu Darvish, Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo and Elvis Andrus all cleared waivers for the Rangers and are now free to be traded to any team.

Although all four players cleared waivers without being claimed, it is unlikely a deal will be made in the short window the Rangers will be working with. This type of move is utilized to see just how much value each player is worth on the open market, so expect to see see all four players remain in Arlington the rest of the season.

Yu Darvish, Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus and Shin-Soo Choo cleared waivers and are now all eligible to be traded.

It's hard to believe Darvish and Beltre cleared waivers given their superiority and team-freindly contracts. But alas, waivers are a funny process. GM Jon Daniels has insisted all season that he has no intention of moving any of his centerpieces, and if we're being honest, he'd have to pay someone to take on the Choo and Andrus contracts.
