Choo at DH today, Choice in LF

New, comment

A day after leaving the game early because of a sore ankle, Shin-Soo Choo is back in the lineup at DH

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Shin-Soo Choo left yesterday's game in the sixth inning because his ankle, which had sidelined him for about a week earlier in the season, was sore.

The Rangers said it was simply a precautionary measure, which seems to be borne out by the fact that Choo is back in the lineup today.  The Rangers have him at DH, presumably to minimize the amount of running he'd have to do on the ankle.

The full lineup:

Choo -- DH

Elvis -- SS

Moreland -- 1B

Beltre -- 3B

Rios -- RF

Leonys -- CF

Choice -- LF

Chirinos -- C

Odor -- 2B

Colby Lewis gets the start today.
