Rangers' Banister talks about Choo's move to right field
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Jeff Banister spoke about moving Shin-Soo Choo from left field to right field for the first time Friday, MLB.com reports.

"We think he'll be more comfortable in right field," Banister said.

Choo spent six years in right field with the Indians but played center field with the Reds in 2013 and left field in most of his first season with the Rangers. He'll have less ground to cover in right field than left during Rangers home games.

"It doesn't matter to me where they put me. I can play all three positions," Choo said.

Choo is returning from elbow and ankle surgeries. He hit .242/.340/.374 with 13 home runs,40 RBI and just three steals in 455 at-bats last season.

Rangers' Shin-Soo Choo won't push himself early
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo isn't going to go all out yet, according to MLB.com.

Choo had season-ending elbow surgery last August, but feels pretty good in camp. He's been able to participate in every drill with outfielders thus far, but added that he's not going to push himself too hard. "It's a long Spring Training," Choo said. "There are going to be some days when I'm sore, but no issues. I'm not worried about it."

Choo, 32, hit .242/.340/.374 over 445 at-bats last year.

Rangers' Banister: Choo 'passing the eye test' during workouts
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Jeff Banister is pleased with how outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is progressing coming off elbow and ankle surgeries, per MLB Network Radio.

"I've seen Choo work out just about everyday here in Arlington," Banister said. "(He is) moving around well. He looks really good and passing the eye test."

Choo had a down year in 2014 after signing a seven-year, $130 million contract with Texas last offseason. The 32-year-old Choo hit .242 with 13 home runs, 19 doubles and 40 RBI in 123 games. He also had just three stolen bases after managing at least 20 stolen bases in four of the previous five seasons.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With six weeks before the start of spring training, Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (elbow) told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Saturday that he's feeling "too good" in rehab from ankle and elbow surgeries. Choo, who was cleared for all baseball activities recently, is primed to move from left field to right field next season.

The 32-year-old hit just .242/.340/.374 over 455 at-bats in 2014.

Rangers' Banister: Choo 'most likely' moving to RF in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Thursday outfielder Shin-Soo Choo will "most likely" move to right field in 2015. Choo primarily played in left field last season for Texas and was the Reds' starting center fielder in 2013, but he played primarily in right field from 2008-12 with the Indians.
