Shin-Soo Choo hits for cycle in Rangers' win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers right fielder Shin-Soo Choo hit for the 259th cycle in MLB history. 

Choo went 4 for 5 with three runs scored and three RBI. 

"He has had some challenges this year, and he has answered a lot of them," manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "To see him end the night the way he has, his teammates cheering him on and yelling for him to go to third, it was great to see."

Two of the last three AL cycles have come from Texas players. Alex Rios turned the trick in 2013. 

The Rockies gave up their first cycle since Scott Hairston victimized them in 2012.

Rangers RF Choo hopes confidence can get him out of slump
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Rangers right fielder Shin-Soo Choo is struggling as of late, but he hopes a boost in confidence will help him find his groove again, according to MLB.com.

Choo is hitting just .107 with seven strikeouts over his last nine games. His overall season hasn't been much better; a .221 average with 11 home runs, 38 RBI and 84 strikeouts.

"Probably a little bit of confidence," Choo said, per MLB.com.

"The confidence in his own game is what he needs," manager Jeff Banister said. "Choo still possesses all the qualities of a terrific player. I would say he needs confidence and consistency."

Choo struggled much of last season and hoped this season he would turn over a new leaf, but it hasn't worked out that way thus far.

"I thought last season was the worst in my career…injury, the team not doing something," Choo said. "It was not what I was looking for when I signed as a free agent.

"This year has been worse than last year."

Rangers OF Shin-Shoo Choo might end up in platoon situation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

There remains a chance Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo could end up in a platoon situation, if he continues to struggle against left-handed pitchers, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

Choo is batting .153 with a .243 slugging percentage and .469 OPS against lefties in 2015. In his career, he hits .234 with a .333 slugging percentage and .660 OPS against left-handers.

Working trade of Shin-Soo Choo won't be easy for Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rangers would like to trade outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to improve their hitting against left-handers, but that will be easier said than done and will probably have to wait until the offseason, per Fox Sports.

Choo owns a miserable .156/.233/.248 slash line against southpaws. He turns 33 on July 13 and is owed $102 million over the next five seasons. His contract also includes a limited no-trade clause that would limit Texas from trading him to only 20 teams.

The Rangers would likely need to pay much of that salary, toss in prospects and take back less expensive talent to swing it.
