Indians' Michael Choice: Designated for assignment
Choice was designated for assignment Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The Indians acquired the former 10th overall pick from the Rangers in August and quickly opted to jettison him off their 40-man roster after acquiring Kirby Yates on Wednesday. Choice recorded a .239/.308/.393 slash line to go along with 13 home runs and 67 RBI with two different Triple-A affiliations in 2015, so it seems likely the Indians would like to see the 26-year-old remain with the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Rangers hoping for LF Michael Choice to step up
Rangers left fielder Michael Choice will get the start on Friday, but the team has yet to say that he'll remain the starter going into the season. The Rangers are hoping that Choice will step up and seize the starting spot in left field. The 25-year-old is cognizant of the fact that he must earn the right to start for the club. "[Banister] was saying it without saying it," Choice said. "I know when I step in that box what is at stake. There hasn't been much in the way of results, but I feel good and my swing is where I want it to be." Choice is in a new situation in that he is used to seeing the field everyday. "Having been an everyday player, I had never been in that situation before," Choice said. "Once I got in that position, it started snowballing and I couldn't stop the snow ball." It isn't clear if Choice will win the position, but if he has another big Spring Training he could win the job in left field.
