Description: Rangers left fielder Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his left ankle.
Insight: Choo will be shut down from running for six to eight weeks. This is on top of the surgery he had in late August for bone spurs in his left elbow. Choo had his worst season as a pro, batting .242/.340/.374 with 13 home runs and four stolen bases in 123 games. He is still signed for the next six years.

Insight: Choo will need surgery for the issue, which he has been dealing with since spring training. In the first year of a seven-year, $130 million contract, Choo hit just .242 with 13 homers, 40 RBI, 58 runs, three steals, 131 Ks and a .714 OPS in 123 games.

Description: Rangers left fielder Shin-Soo Choo has gone 0-for-17 in his last five games and 10-for-63 (.159) since June 29, so he's not a good option Sunday even though he has great numbers against Toronto's Mark Buehrle.
Insight: Choo's career OPS against lefties is 224 points below his OPS against righties, but he's 15-for-36 (.417) with a double, a triple and a homer against Buehrle. Choo's hitless stretch has his average down to .236 for the season.
