Rangers | Delino DeShields hitting leadoff

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:50:05 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is in the leadoff spot Friday, May 22, against the New York Yankees. OF Shin-Soo Choo is in the second spot.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 6-for-22 with two stolen bases over the past week, so the Rangers may want some speed atop the lineup. Choo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has a .267 average (8-for-30) and one home run in that same period.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo loves hitting leadoff

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:25:19 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo had three more hits Thursday, May 14, extending his hitting streak to an American League-high 14 games. He's batting .373 (22-for-59) in May to raise his average from .096 to .243.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has really flipped a switch at the plate since moving to the leadoff spot. Atop the Rangers order, he's hitting a whopping .349 (15-for-43) with three of his four home runs and seven RBI. It's hard to go wrong with Choo in your FantasyScore lineups right now while he's hot.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo homers again

Thu, 14 May 2015 05:17:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo hit a leadoff home run for the second straight game Wednesday, May 13, as the Rangers scored a 5-2 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been disappointing, to say the least, ever since he arrived in Texas. This is an indication he may be shaking those doldrums a bit, but keep the enthusiasm down. He remains a low-cost alternative to the pricier outfielders.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo to remain in leadoff spot

Sat, 09 May 2015 12:26:35 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo will continue to hit leadoff for the team, even though OF Leonys Martin (wrist) is returning to the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Following a disastrous April, Choo ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is batting .273 during the month of May and carries an eight-game hitting streak into Saturday's contest. His overall numbers remain underwhelming (.165, 3 HR, 12 RBIs) but his recent turnaround could interest FantasyScore owners who need a low-cost outfielder to round out their lineup.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo to stay atop lineup

Fri, 08 May 2015 18:52:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo will continue to lead off even when OF Leonys Martin (wrist) returns from injury, manager Jeff Banister said Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has recorded an extra-base hit in seven straight games, including all four games he has hit leadoff. He has seven RBIs and four runs scored over the same stretch, and he makes a decent value play at FantasyScore in his new role.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo at leadoff for a while?

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:48:16 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo will get a lengthy look at the leadoff spot, with OF Leonys Martin dropped in the order, according to manager Jeff Bannister. Martin was 5-for-26 (.192) on the team's homestand and hasn't walked in the last nine games. He has been dropped to eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) broke out of his long slump this weekend, and Texas hopes he can carry that momentum with him into the leadoff spot. Martin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to be avoided at FantasyScore, especially with his drop in the lineup. Both players are facing a tough left-handed starter tonight in Houston Astros starter Dallas Keuchel.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo leading off

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:08:11 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday, May 4. OF Leonys Martin was dropped to eighth in the order Monday.

Fantasy Tip: While Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) showed signs of life and broke out of a long slump over the weekend, he should be avoided against Keuchel tonight at FantasyScore. Martin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is hitting only .223 (23-for-103) with one home run and eight RBI on the year. He was a candidate to avoid already while slumping, and his drop in the order only cements that.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back in lineup

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:56:34 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is back in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was given several days off to work on some things after starting the year hitting .096 (5-for-52). A slow start says you should continue to avoid him at FantasyScore, and facing a difficult southpaw in Kazmir makes it a no-brainer.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo remains out

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:39:45 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. OF Carlos Peguero is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Choo is mired in a terrible slump to start the year and is likely receiving a couple days off to work on his swing mechanics and get his head right. Peguero ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is not an attractive option for FantasyScore users against King Felix tonight.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo in deep funk

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:30:55 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo hasn't recorded a hit in his last 20 at-bats, which has found him on the bench Tuesday, April 28. He also has the league's lowest batting average (.096). Manager Jeff Bannister said Choo will work with the team's hitting instructors and may have another day off Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: You should look to stay away from Choo at FantasyScore for the foreseeable future. The Rangers don't have great options to replace him in the outfield, though, with Delino DeShields ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) starting in right field Tuesday.
