Player Notes
Rangers placed OF Shin-Soo Choo on the 15-day disabled list with a bone spur in his left elbow.

Advice: Choo will undergo season-ending surgery later this week. It's a sour ending to what has been a disappointing first year in Texas for Choo, who hit just .242/.340/.374. He still has six years and $116 million remaining on his contract.

Shin-Soo Choo will have season-ending surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow.

Advice: Choo has dealt with the bone spur since spring training and the issue has apparently gotten worse recently. He could have the procedure as soon as Friday if he can get over a cold in the next few days. Choo has also been nagged by an ankle injury for most of the season, which has no doubt contributed to a disappointing .242/.340/.374 batting line. He still has six years and $116 million remaining on his contract.

Shin-Soo Choo did not record a hit in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Royals.

Advice: In the first year of a big contract, Shin-Soo Choo continued a frustrating season on Friday, going 0-for-4. He's hitting better in August (.250/.284/.408) than he did in July or June, but that's not saying much. For the year, he's slugged twelve home runs and knocked in 39 runs. As disappointing as the batting numbers are, he's also only stolen three bases while being thrown out four times.
