Hot: Shin Soo Choo
Shin Soo Choo has been the victim of Rangers criticism for two years now, and rightfully so. But in the past week he has shown exactly why the Rangers were so excited to get him a couple years ago. He has been getting on base, hitting for power, and wrecking havoc in the lineup.
In the past week, Choo has hit .357 (10-for-28), with a double, two home runs, and six RBIs. But if you recall, Choo’s greatest ability in Cleveland was his ability to get on base. He’s showcasing that ability finally in a Rangers uniform, working six walks in the past week.
This is incredibly encouraging for Rangers fans, because this is the second week in a row in which he has put together a solid outing. So far in September, he’s hitting .359 with three doubles, a triple, and two home runs.
If the Rangers can get consistent contributions from Choo at the dish, this lineup instantly becomes much more formidable.
