Bats: L, Throws: L

For at least one night, Shin-Soo Choo looked like his old self, as he blasted a game-tying three-run home run in the Rangers 8-7 extra-inning win over the Oakland A's. Choo launched his second home run of the season with two out in the 7th inning. He also stroked his third double of the season.

Fantasy Impact: One night does not a season make, but Choo certainly picked a great time to come up big for the Rangers. Texas had blown an early 2-0 lead by giving up six runs in the top of the 7th, but Choo's blast capped a four-run bottom of the inning for the Rangers.

What to do with Shin-Soo Choo?

As Shin-Soo Choo's struggles continue, the Rangers will have some serious decisions to make if and when the Josh Hamilton saga begins anew.

Fantasy Impact: Choo put another 0-for-4 performance in the books today, leaving five men on base. The bagel lowered his season average to .104 (5-for-48) and he has driven in only five runs all season. Not exactly the type of performance the Rangers were expecting when they signed him to a seven-year, $130 million dollar deal.

 

Shin-Soo Choo's struggles continue

It was another rough night for Shin-Soo Choo as the Rangers outfielder went 0-for-4 in tonight's 7-1 win over Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: Choo is now batting a miserable .135. He has had only two games this season where he drove in a run, and he is struggling against both lefthanded and righthanded pitching. He's too good a player to continue at this rate, but he might find a spot on your bench until he figures things out.

Fantasy Impact: It's deja vu all over again for the Rangers. Starter Derek Holland lasted only one inning before leaving with a shoulder strain that is expected to sideline him for 4-6 weeks. Choo, coming off an injury-marred season last year, followed Holland to the clubhouse the next inning with back spasms. The Rangers are calling Choo day-to-day at this point.

Shin-Soo Choo comes alive

Shin-Soo Choo had a great day at the plate against the Oakland A's on Thursday. He went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, and scored twice.

Fantasy Impact: Choo has gotten off to a slow start but his bat woke up on Thursday against young starter Kendall Graveman. Choo is now batting .250 to start the season and had his first home run and RBI of the season in this game. Choo is trying to have a bounce back season after a disappointing 2014.

Shin-Soo Choo goes 2-for-2

Shin-Soo Choo closed out the exhibition season by going 2-for-2 today in the Rangers 4-4 tie with the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact: With the two hits, Choo raised his spring average to around the Mendoza line at .205. The Rangers will need him to be a force in the lineup this year after a disappointing 2014 season.

Fantasy Impact: While assistant GM Thad Levine said the injury was not considered serious, after last season's debacle, anytime a Rangers player complains of injury, it is indeed serious. Choo had surgery on his left elbow last summer to remove a bone spur, so this bears watching.
