Insight: Choo has a 10-game hitting streak, yet he is still batting .183/.294/.376 this season. That should tell owners how bat he was hitting before that. In May, Choo is hitting .270/.333/.595 with six doubles, two home runs and seven RBI.

Description: Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo left Friday's game and is doubtful for Saturday's game against Houston due to upper back spasms.
Insight: he dealt with a triceps injury in spring training and now this. So far, Choo has been a bust in his time with Texas. Jake Smolinski would likely get the start of Choo can't go.

Description: Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, after a disappointing first season in Texas, is not expected to be the team's primarly leadoff hitter.

Cold7/20/2014 12:18:00 PM
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.

Description: Rangers left fielder Shin-Soo Choo is a career .452 hitter (14-for-31) with a 1.145 OPS against Angels right-hander Jered Weaver.
Insight: Choo hasn't been much of a fantasy asset this season, batting .252 with a .766 OPS. We're not sure Choo, who hasn't had an extra-base hit in seven games, is swinging well enough to take advantage of this favorable matchup.
