|Shin-Soo Choo hits first one out |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo hasn't provided much run production this season, but he found his power stroke in an 8-6 win over the Mariners Thursday.
Choo hit his first home run of the season Thursday, a solo shot in the second inning. He added a single later in the game, finishing 2 for 5 with a pair of strikeouts.
Choo hasn't hit for much power for the Rangers, but he has been doing his typically excellent job getting on base. Though he didn't hit his first home run until his 16th game of the season, he is hitting .293/.417/.414 on the season.

(4/12/14) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo went 1 for 3 with three walks and his first stolen base of the season in his team's 1-0 win over the Astros Friday.
Choo owns a six-game hitting streak, but his most impressive statistic recently has been his walk rate, as he's drawn seven walks in just 15 plate appearances over his last three games. Choo's excellent play has given him a .353/.500/.471 line in 34 at-bats.
|Shin-Soo Choo receives anti-inflammatory elbow injection |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/13/14) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who has been experiencing minor left elbow pain, received an injection of anti-inflammatory medication on Thursday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Choo felt some more pain on Wednesday and was in the lineup as a DH on Thursday. No word on when he'll be healthy enough to play the field.
"This happens every spring training," Choo said. "It's the same problem, the same pain. Normally, it takes about 10 days, I take medicine. I DH. I get treatment. It makes it better."

(3/12/14) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is back in his familiar leadoff spot Wednesday against the Angels. He had missed a few games with an ailing elbow.
Choo is off to a slow start with his new team. He is batting just .176 in 17 at-bats with a double.
|Shin-Soo Choo out again Tuesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/11/14) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is out again Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
Choo is dealing with soreness in his throwing arm, but doesn't expect the injury to be serious. He believes he'll play Wednesday. Choo said he typically has elbow discomfort early in camp, and that it's not a big concern.
Choo hit .285/.423/.462 in 569 at-bats last year.
WSox 3 HRs, throw 2-hitter in 16-2 win at Texas
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura succinctly and aptly described the series finale at Texas.

Lewis gets 1st win in two years as Rangers top ChiSox
Colby Lewis pitched into the sixth inning for his first win in nearly two years, Prince Fielder homered and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-3 on Saturday night.
Lewis gets 1st win in 2 years, Texas 6-3 over WSox
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Colby Lewis had to be reminded about his last victory for the Texas Rangers. It had been a while.
|Though Shin-Soo Choo got back to being a top-flight outfielder in Fantasy with his move to a hitter's park in 2013, he didn't benefit in the way most people expected. Yeah, he reached 20 homers for the first time in three seasons, but he actually hit more on the road (11) than at home (10). The greater achievement was a career-high .423 on-base percentage, good for fourth among qualifying hitters, which led to a career-high 107 runs scored batting at the top of the Reds lineup. With a patient approach and a knack for hitting .300, Choo has always been an on-base guy, but his 112 walks put him on par with Joey Votto, which is why he attracted so much attention in free agency. While a repeat performance at age 31 might be a little too much to ask, his third 20-20 season in five should make him one of the top 15 outfielders drafted in mixed leagues, especially since he'll again be in a hitter's haven with his move to Texas. If nothing else, Rotisserie league owners can trust him for decent production in batting average, home runs and steals, and his walks make him even more valuable in Head-to-Head points leagues.
