Shin-Soo Choo still 'not really comfortable' with sore ankle


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo said Monday that he's still "not really comfortable" with his chronically sore ankle, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Choo admits that he tried to come back from his ankle injury in April too quickly. "I made a bad decision," he said. "But I wanted to come back as soon as possible. I was more aggressive. But I just want to play the whole year."

Choo will play in right field over the next few days to help manage the stress, giving himself less area to cover than at his normal position in left field. However, manager Ron Washington downplayed the notion Choo would move to the position more permanently.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"He said he was a little sore, so we took him out," manager Ron Washington said, per The Dallas Morning News. "The minute he said he was sore, I thought we would end up making him the DH [Sunday].

"He’s going to have to manage it all year. There are some days it’s going to bother him more than others. And in this park, against this team, he’s going to do a lot of running."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
