Choo went 1-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rays. Choo played an integral role in ending the Rangers' five-game losing streak, with his ninth-inning solo shot tying things at 3-3. He would come to the plate again in the top of the 10th, drawing an intentional walk before Elvis Andrus' infield single allowed the Rangers to capture the lead. For all his heroics Friday, Choo has largely scuffled in July, bating .233 with two home runs, seven RBI and seven runs in 15 games.
Choo went 1-for-2 with two walks, two RBI, a stolen base and a run during Thursday's loss to Baltimore. Choo's greatest fantasy asset is his ability to move the needle across all categories, and that was on full display Thursday. The veteran sports a respectable .252/.365/.408 slash line with 13 homers, 46 RBI, nine steals and 51 runs. Hitting in the top third of the Texas lineup also projects to help him remain a serviceable supporting piece in the majority of virtual settings.
Choo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 12-1 loss to the Orioles. Choo hit his 23rd career leadoff home run to give his team an early edge, but that was the Rangers' lone highlight of the night. While starting pitcher Tyson Ross squandered any chance of the Rangers ending their losing skid by giving up six runs in the bottom half of the inning, Texas' offensive struggles of late could prompt manager Jeff Banister to explore shaking up his lineup in the near future. Choo won't necessarily be immune to any lineup tinkering, as he's slashing an awful .204/.273/.306 in July.
Choo went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Royals. Choo plated the game's only run in the top of the ninth inning, blooping an opposite-field hit off Danny Duffy with one out to lead the Rangers to their second straight win out of the All-Star break. Despite his clutch performance Saturday, Choo hasn't been much of an asset for fantasy owners in July, batting just .179 with no home runs and one steal in nine games.
Choo went 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 10-0 romp over the Angels. Choo and Carlos Gomez (0-for-5, four strikeouts) struggled to ignite the offense in the top two spots in the lineup, but fortunately for the Rangers, the next three hitters (Nomar Mazara, Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor) were able to pick up the slack, producing a combined seven hits -- including one home run apiece -- and eight RBI. With one hit in his last three games, Choo is closing out the first half with a whimper, but his patient eye at the plate has allowed him to maintain a .367 on-base percentage for the season. He's in little danger of surrendering his role as the Rangers' leadoff man.
