by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rangers right fielder Shin-Soo Choo is out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Mariners with Jake Smolinski filling in, according to MLB.com. Manager Jeff Banister wants Choo to take the day off Tuesday to work on his mechanics at the plate and "unplug." He is considering giving him a second day off Wednesday as well.

Choo started the last nine games in a row and is hitting .096 with five hits in 63 plate appearances, the lowest among qualified hitters. Smolinski isn't hitting much better, posting a .111 average in 36 at-bats.

Rangers manager planning more rest days for starters
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Jeff Bannister is planning to give his starters more rest time this season, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wednesday, Bannister took outfielder Shin-Soo Choo out of the lineup to give Jake Smolinski the start and shuffled Adam Rosales in at third to move Adrian Beltre to DH and Mitch Moreland to the bench.

"You can't ask guys to sit on the bench for seven days and then expect them to be effective," Banister said. "But I also believe what you gain on the front end of the year proves worthy on the other side.

"Guys may have just been at spring training, but spring training is 40-plus days of grinding, too," he added. "This is a 183-day marathon. If there are ways we can help guys show up better and then get five, six, seven days of dynamic play from them, we're going to do that."

He is also not worried about Choo's defense.

"It has nothing to do with what I think of Shin-Soo Choo's defense," Banister said. "He missed time in spring with an elbow issue. He is coming off a lower body injury from last year. He had gone hard after a couple of balls earlier in the game and he was eight batters away from coming up again. It was an opportunity to get fresh legs and a fresh arm in there. I don't foresee it becoming a regular occurrence."
