Part of Shin-Soo Choo's impressive ability to get on base is that he isn't afraid to get hit by a pitch.  Choo posted a .423 on-base percentage, the fourth-best in the majors. He also was hit by a pitch 26 times, the most by any big leaguer in 2013.  "Hit by pitch is part of baseball," Choo said Friday night. "I can't do anything. If I get scared about hit by pitch, I might change approach and I can't do anything. Pitchers can throw inside. I can hit it or I get hit." 

Whatever the case may be, Choo has made a career out of being able to get on base at a high clip, which in return landed him a $130 million contract this offseason. Choo is expected to bat leadoff for the Rangers in 2014, the spot in which he has a .300 batting average and .413 on-base percentage over the last three seasons. If Choo can stay healthy and the Rangers newly reformed lineup lives up to expectations, there is no reason to think he can't finish out as a top 15 fantasy outfielder in 2014.
