Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo could hit second

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 13:23:21 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo could hit in the second spot this season, with OF Leonys Martin being given every opportunity to stick in the leadoff spot this spring. A return to the No. 2 spot would allow Choo to hit in the more traditional "production" spot in Texas' lineup. However, if Martin ends up struggling against lefties, Choo could be considered for the top spot.

Fantasy Tip: Choo played in just 123 games in 2014 because of an injury. A return to full health and hitting in the No. 2 spot makes Choo an undervalued commodity in fantasy baseball drafts. He could return to the 20-home run mark and return plenty of profit for his owners.

Rangers | Leonys Martin wants to remain at leadoff

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:10:27 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin, who only hit leadoff in 35 games last year, wants to stick in the role in 2015, and new manager Jeff Bannister appears to be on board. OF Shin-Soo Choo is the other option to hit first, as he was the team's primary leadoff man before being hurt in 2014. Martin has gone over 30 stolen bases in each of the last two years, and he spent much of his offseason working on his baserunning. "I've been a leadoff man my entire career," Martin said. "I'm ready. I want to show I can help my team, get on base and try to score runs."

Fantasy Tip: Martin's back-to-back seasons of 30 stolen bases is comforting when you go to select him in the middle rounds of standard drafts. Hitting leadoff is where he'll have the highest fantasy value, as it'll also boost his runs potential.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo moving around well

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 13:44:00 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle, elbow) has reported to camp early and worked in the outfield for the first time Monday, Feb. 16, since undergoing season-ending surgery on his left ankle and left elbow last year. "I moved around, caught fly balls, threw the ball," Choo said. "I feel really happy and very excited to play the field. It made me smile. We took it light and easy, but I was happy to be out there again."

Fantasy Tip: You can lump Choo into the group of injured outfielders this year that will come at a discount because of what happened last year. A 20-20 season isn't a full stretch while playing in Texas, assuming he's fully healthy in 2015. Those kind of numbers would be a steal in the middle rounds of your mixed draft.
