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
(5/4/2014) Rangers rookie outfielder Michael Choice slugged his second home run of the season and plated four runs in his team's 14-3 win over the Angels on Sunday.

Choice singled in a run in the opening frame and broke the game open with a three-run home run in the fourth. He finished 2 for 5 with a run scored and four RBI, improving his batting average to .213 on the year. He has just five hits in his last 24 at-bats.

Michael Choice set for first start Saturday

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.

Choice, a right-handed hitter, will help balance out a primarily lefty-hitting outfielder that includes two lefty-hitting starters in Shin-Soo Choo and Leonys Martin as well as a lefty-hitting designated hitter in Mitch Moreland who should also see time in the outfield. Choice has put on a show this spring, hitting .361/.391/.672 with four home runs and 15 RBI in 61 at-bats.
