Player Notes
Rangers activated OF Shin-Soo Choo from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: It had looked like Choo was done for the regular season when he fractured his left forearm in mid-August, but he's managed to make it back for the final series. He's in right field and batting seventh Friday, as Carlos Gomez has retained the leadoff spot for now. Nomar Mazara is on the bench.

Shin-Soo Choo (forearm) is expected to rejoin the Rangers on Friday.

Advice: Choo is on the mend from a fractured left forearm sustained on August 17. In terms of his potential postseason role, it is more likely that the Rangers utilize him in the outfield than at designated hitter. But it's all up in the air at the moment. Choo was batting .247/.369/.416 with seven home runs and six stolen bases in 45 games before his latest disabled list stint. He has also missed time this season with back, calf, and hamstring injuries.

Shin-Soo Choo (forearm) took batting practice against live pitching on Saturday.

Advice: The Rangers are very hopeful that Choo will be active for the start of the ALDS, and it's not inconceivable that he could return in time to get a few at-bats before the end of the regular season. He has been on the shelf since August 17 due to a fractured left forearm.
