Shin-Soo Choo recovered nicely from an injury-plagued first season with the Rangers to finish as a top 25 Fantasy outfielder in 2015. Not only was Choo more durable, starting 145 games, including all of the final 53, but he was a much more powerful hitter, notching 22 home runs and 32 doubles. If healthy, Choo could perform like a No. 2 outfielder in all standard mixed league formats. Because of his checkered health history, you can afford to wait a little longer on Choo, targeting him as a high-end No. 3 outfielder instead.
Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo stayed hot Saturday, going 2 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored, two RBI and his 20th home run of the season. He's now got a two-game home run streak, a five-game RBI streak and a .425/.545/.644 slash line in September. Choo's surge has helped carry the Rangers to the top of the AL West, but he might need to stay locked in for another week if they're going to finish the job.
Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo went 3 for 5 with a homer, three RBI and a run in Friday's win over Houston. It has been a tale of two seasons for Choo, who recorded a mediocre .221/.305/.384 slash line prior to the All-Star break. After the break, his line has hulked out to .349/.466/.552 and he ranks in the top 10 in hits, doubles, runs, batting average and on-base percentage among outfielders. He should be in your lineup each and every day.
Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo went 2 for 3 with two walks and a run scored in a 10-1 win over the Mariners on Saturday. Choo is on a ridiculous streak right now, as his on-base percentage is above .450 over his last 56 games. This was the player fantasy owners were expecting all season and it's a good sign for years to come. If he could get completely healthy and regain the steal potential he had in past seasons, Choo's value would rise exponentially.
Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo went 3 for 4 in Friday's loss to the Mariners. The hits keep coming for Choo. Since Sept. 1, he is batting an incredible .444 with a .557 OBP and 15 runs scored. During that span, he has improved his season average from .249 to .271. Despite a rough start in Texas through last season and most of 2015, Choo deserves to be plugged into the lineup every day for the fantasy playoffs.
Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo went 4 for 5 with two RBI and two runs against the Astros on Thursday. After a three-hit Wednesday, Choo one-upped himself in this one. He's putting together a late push to improveh is numbers -- the OBP is already looking solid at .364, but he's pulled his average up 14 points to .267 over the last seven games, and his OPS is over .800 again too. This is not the same Choo of the old days, especially with his steals having evaporated, but he's still providing credible fantasy production.
