Rangers hoping for LF Michael Choice to step up


(3/12/2015) Rangers left fielder Michael Choice will get the start on Friday, but the team has yet to say that he'll remain the starter going into the season.

The Rangers are hoping that Choice will step up and seize the starting spot in left field. The 25-year-old is cognizant of the fact that he must earn the right to start for the club.

"[Banister] was saying it without saying it," Choice said. "I know when I step in that box what is at stake. There hasn't been much in the way of results, but I feel good and my swing is where I want it to be."

Choice is in a new situation in that he is used to seeing the field everyday.

"Having been an everyday player, I had never been in that situation before," Choice said. "Once I got in that position, it started snowballing and I couldn't stop the snow ball."

It isn't clear if Choice will win the position, but if he has another big Spring Training he could win the job in left field.

Michael Choice has definite sleeper appeal


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) One of the trades that got the biggest reaction from me this offseason probably flew under the radar for most people. I just couldn't understand how the Athletics could give up a legitimate prospect like Michael Choice for a role player like Craig Gentry.

Choice was the 10th overall pick in the 2010, and though his power stroke was inconsistent in the minors, between it and his walk rate, he still profiled as a high-OPS guy in the majors.

I mention it now because Choice is the most likely player to see an increase in at-bats with Prince Fielder out for the season. And though he's batting just .194 this season, like any player breaking into the league, he'll benefit from more consistent at-bats. And even with the sporadic ones, he's managed a high walk rate.

In AL-only leagues, he should already be owned, and he could matter in mixed leagues soon enough. If I was short on depth in a five-outfielder league, I might go ahead and make a play for him.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Michael Choice set for first start Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Michael Choice wins fourth outfielder job


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Rangers outfielder Michael Choice has won a bench spot on the team's initial 25-man roster, MLB.com reports.
