Choi will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. With CC Sabathia in line to take the mound for the opposition, Choi will get another day off. Travis d'Arnaud, who belted three homers Monday night, will lead off and draw the start at first base in Choi's place.
Choi is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Both Choi and Nate Lowe will head to the bench with a southpaw (James Paxton) on the bump for New York, but the two could be fighting for one spot in Tampa Bay's regular lineup against right-handed pitchers. Even though Choi is the more battled-tested option at the MLB level, Lowe boasts a higher pedigree and may have surged ahead of Choi in the playing-time battle after batting .471 with three home runs and seven RBI in the four-game series in Baltimore over the weekend.
Choi is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Considering Game 1 was Choi's first game back from an ankle injury and that the O's are trotting out a lefty (John Means) in Game 2, it is hardly surprising to see him sitting in the nightcap. Yandy Diaz starts at designated hitter while Nate Lowe starts at first base. Look for Choi to continue sitting against most lefties going forward.
Choi (ankle) was activated from the injured list ahead of Saturday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He will presumably slot in as either the first baseman or designated hitter, with Nate Lowe occupying the other role going forward. That said, Lowe's presence on the roster will likely lead to slightly more off days for Choi over the rest of the season.
Choi (ankle) is expected to return from the 10-day injured list Saturday or Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. If Choi hits that timeline, he'll wind up missing just over the minimum 10 days with a left ankle sprain. He should return to a regular role at first base -- at least against right-handed pitching -- once healthy and will look to build on his solid .266/.351/.423 line from the first half of the season.
