Choo is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners. Choo will sit for the third time in the last four games after going 2-for-5 with a double and a run in Friday's loss. Carlos Tocci will start in left field and bat eighth for the Rangers.
Choo is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners. Choo will sit for a second straight game as the Rangers, who are out of playoff contention, look to give the younger Willie Calhoun ample opportunities over the final week of the season. Calhoun is starting in left field and hitting eighth Thursday.
Choo is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels. Choo is hitless in his last three starts (13 at-bats), so he'll head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale to clear his head. In his absence, Joey Gallo, Carlos Tocci and Nomar Mazara are covering the outfield from left to right.
Choo is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays. Choo will hit the bench for the second time in the last three games after going 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's series opener. In his absence, Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting eighth.
Choo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres. Choo will sit out for the second time in five games as the Rangers aim to make room in the outfield for September callup Willie Calhoun. Choo is expected to maintain an everyday role as the season winds down, but his rest days are expected to become more frequent over the final two weeks while the Rangers evaluate some younger options.
