Choo went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Giants. Choo's fifth-inning shot was his second long ball of the season. Unfortunately, he has just three hits in his first 20 at-bats. With a homer in two straight games, it appears Choo may be pulling out of his slump.
Choo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants. Choo blasted his first home run of the season to lead off Friday's game, but he'll be out of the starting nine for the third time in the past five games Saturday. Rob Refsnyder will serve as the designated hitter and bat ninth with Choo on the bench.
Choo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a hit by pitch in Friday's 9-2 loss to the Giants. Choo deposited the first pitch he saw from Giants starter Logan Webb into the left field seats. The homer is Choo's first of the year, as well as his first run scored and second RBI. He's hitting only .125 through 19 plate appearances. The 38-year-old started in left field and batted leadoff Friday, but more commonly serves as the designated hitter.
Choo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Since the Rangers are playing a day game after a night game and facing a southpaw (Madison Bumgarner), the lefty-hitting Choo's absence from the lineup doesn't come as any surprise. Nick Solak gets a turn as the Rangers' designated hitter in place of Choo.
Choo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies. Choo started the first two games of the season and went 1-for-8 with one walk and one RBI, but he'll sit Sunday with the Rangers utilizing a heavy lineup of right-handed hitters. Willie Calhoun will serve as the designated hitter while Nick Solak starts in left field.
