Texas Rangers outfielder Michael Choice left today's game with a leg injury

Texas Rangers outfielder Michael Choice left today's game in the bottom of the 5th inning after pulling up at second base on a double.  Choice was carried off the field, and was grabbing at his leg when pulling up at second base with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

The way Choice was helped off the field would suggest that this is likely the end of Choice's 2014 campaign.  It has been a disappointing year for Choice, who came over to Texas, along with minor league second baseman Chris Bostick, in an offseason deal that saw Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom go to Oakland.

If this is it for Choice, he's ending the season on a high note, going 2 for 3 today with a double and a triple, lifting his season slash line to .182/.250/.320.  He will likely be battling Daniel Robertson and Ryan Rua for a bench role or part-time starting spot next spring.

UPDATE -- Per John Blake, Choice has a strained left hamstring, and will have an MRI tomorrow.
