Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo admits he made a "bad decision" about his ankle earlier in the season.

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.

Shin-Soo Choo is expected to be back in the Rangers lineup Monday, but new Yankee Stadium has not been kind to him as he is hitting just .146 over 48 at-bats in the park.

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.

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

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.

Shin-Soo Choo is expected to get the day off Sunday.

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.

Rangers manager Ron Washington will keep Shin-Soo Choo from playing the outfield at all during the team's three-game series in Toronto.

The ankle has obviously been more of an issue for Choo than has been reported and the fact that Washington is limiting him so that he doesn't spend a lot of time on the turf in Toronto screams volumes about how his play has suffered because of the injury. There's still a half-season for him to rebound, but he's going to need a little bit more time off than usual moving forward.

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

With the Angels throwing lefty Tyler Skaggs at them Sunday, manager Ron Washington is stacking up the right-handed hitters. Choo will be replaced by Jake Smolinski, who is 8-for-17 (.471) with four RBI since joining the Rangers.

Shin-Soo Choo went 1-for-3 with a home run, one RBI, two runs scored and a pair of walks in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Mets.

After a miserable start to the season, Choo has started to come to life, having now homered in back-to-back games while hitting safely in eight of his last 10 contests. He is now slashing .254/.378/.401 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 46 runs and three stolen bases, but we should see improvements in the second half if his recent production is a sign of whats to come.

Shin-Soo Choo went 1-for-3, smacking his eighth home run of the season in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Orioles. 

Choo was responsible for one of the two runs scored by the Rangers on Thursday night, as he connected on just his second home run since the middle of May. He is now slashing .254/.374/.391 with eight home runs, 30 RBI and only three stolen bases over 284 a-bats as he continues to be a major disappointment in his first year with the Rangers. However, as long as he maintains his high on-base percentage, there is still hope for a turn around in the second half of the season.

Shin-Soo Choo is leading off for the Rangers on Friday.

Choo has hit .269 out of the leadoff spot this year as opposed to batting .193 out of the three-hole. If the Rangers are ever going to turn things around and try and get back into the playoff race, then they're going to need every bit of help they can get. Choo just seems to be more productive out of the leadoff spot.

Shin-Soo Choo was one of the lone bright spots for the Rangers on Wednesday as he went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the 4-2 loss to the A's.

Choo got his first two hits in four games (16 at-bats). The Rangers left fielder went from leading the American League in average earlier in the season to hitting just .253 and if that weren't enough to frustrate fantasy owners he has just three steals after posting back-to-back 20 steal seasons.
