Yankees' Ji-Man Choi: Inks NRI deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Choi signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training.

It's not surprising that Choi could not find a big league deal after electing free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to Triple-A in the Angels' organization. He posted a 67 wRC+ last year while getting 125 of his 129 plate appearances with the platoon advantage. Greg Bird, Tyler Austin and Rob Refsnyder all figure to be ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.

Ji-Man Choi: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Choi has elected free agency in lieu of accepting his outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The 25-year-old did not see a clear path to playing time on the big league roster in Anaheim, so he will test the market instead of agreeing to ride buses in 2017. Of course, coming off a year where he posted a 67 wRC+ while getting 125 of his 129 plate appearances with the platoon advantage, he will likely have to settle for a minor league pact with his next organization.

Angels' Ji-Man Choi: Clears waivers, outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Choi has passed through waivers unclaimed and been outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Choi was the roster casualty of Ben Revere's one-year deal with the Angels and will now join the team's Triple-A affiliate after a disappointing rookie campaign. It's possible he will join the Angels at spring training as a non-roster invitee, but his .170/.271/.339 batting line at the top level last season and expected lack of opportunities at the major league level in 2017 make him an undesirable fantasy asset in the majority of fantasy formats.

Angels' Ji-Man Choi: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Choi was designated for assignment on Friday, the Los Angeles Times' Mike DiGiovanna reports.

The Angels needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster after the signing of Ben Revere to a one-year deal, and Choi was the casualty. He was pretty underwhelming in his first year in the big leagues last season, slashing .170/.271/.339 with five home runs in 129 plate appearances. His .170 ISO indicates noteworthy pop, and his .173 BABIP points to some bad luck, but he does not profile as someone who will play enough or hit for a high enough average to be useful in standard leagues anytime soon.

Angels' Ji-Man Choi: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Choi was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake City on Sunday.

With C.J. Cron, Jefry Marte and Albert Pujols all capable of manning first base, Choi's roster spot was deemed expendable despite 15 starts there this season. His offensive production has also taken a steep turn for the worse since launching two homers in an Aug. 4 contest, as Choi is just 3-for-25 since then.
