Shin-Soo Choo in starting lineup for ALDS Game 1

The Rangers have Shin-Soo Choo on their ALDS roster, and he’s playing right field and batting ninth today

MLB: Texas Rangers at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Shin-Soo Choo was a player of mystery for the playoffs, as it was unclear whether he would be on the active roster for the ALDS, given he was activated from the disabled list for just the final three games of the season after missing almost two months with a broken arm.

However, Choo is in today’s lineup against the Jays, and is batting ninth. The lineup:

Gomez — LF

Desmond — CF

Beltran — DH

Beltre -- 3B

Odor — 2B

Lucroy — C

Moreland — 1B

Elvis — SS

Choo — RF
