It is starting to seem like Choo is a permanent member on the Not list. He is hitting .227/.310/.395 in 2015, which is one of his worst hitting seasons of his career. In the month of June, Choo hit .225/.301/.343 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 113 plate appearances. He has hit better when playing at home, hitting .277/.355/.471 at home versus just .194/.279/.344 while on the road.
This past week, Choo hit .143/.176/.214 with three RBI and just two hits in his 14 at-bats. Choo hit seventh, eighth, and second in the order this week as it seems the Rangers have finally realized he can not be hitting second. The Rangers need to be scoring runs and having a player with a .176 on-base percentage for the week will not get it done as evidenced by Choo not scoring any runs this week. Rougned Odor took his spot in the order and gives the team a much better chance to win with him and Delino DeShields Jr. at the top of the lineup.
And now, a look at who has been hot in the past week.
