LF,RF,DH - FA
Veteran outfielder Shin Soo-Choo is working out at first base in hopes of finding a new home as a free agent. According to Robert Murray, the Brewers have interest in him.
Over the past several seasons, Shin Soo-Choo primarily played in the outfield or as a designated hitter. Assuming the National League doesn't bring back the DH, adding first base eligibility would help his ability to find a new team. In 2020, he hit five home runs, 13 runs, 15 RBI, and six steals with a .236 BA. However, from 2017-2019, he consistently produced and averaged 22 home runs, 90 runs, 67 RBI, and 11 steals with a triple slash of .263/.368/.437 in 653 plate appearances. If he signs with a team, don't forget about Shin Soo-Choo in fantasy baseball drafts.
Shin-Soo Choo suffered a mild ankle sprain in a collision in the first inning of Sunday's game against the Astros.
Choo just reached the end of his large contract with the Rangers, and he isn't sure if he will retire. He finished 2020 with a .229 average, five homers, 13 runs, 15 RBI, and six steals in only 32 games. He is still capable of being an asset in deeper leagues if he chooses to continue playing.
The Rangers activated Shin-Soo Choo (wrist) off the 10-day injured list.
It looked like Choo might not return at all this season, but he'll suit up for the Rangers' regular season finale. It could be his final game with Texas.
The Rangers placed Shin-Soo Choo on the 10-day injured list with a sprained wrist.
Choo suffered the injury on Monday. He was likely to be sat more often moving forward, anyways, as Texas wants to see what some of their younger bats can do in a lost season.
Shin-Soo Choo exited Monday's game against the Mariners early with a sprained right hand. He did receive X-rays, which came up negative.
Choo was 1-for-2 with a run scored before leaving early. He was replaced at DH by Eli White. The negative X-rays are good news but Choo should still be considered day-to-day for now.
