Will Shin-Soo chew forever?

May 1, 2015

2014 Texas Rangers Photo Day

5-for-52 on the season and 0-for-19 on the trot, Shin-Soo Choo needs a change of scenery. He has $116M left on his Rangers deal so we can’t help him out in real life, but Curacao Littleleague welcomes him aboard in hopes he’ll turn it around.

We likely took the worst of this deal shipping Chris Young the hitter (5 HR, .369 OBP, 10 XBH) the other way but the goal here is to take a risk and see if Choo can regain his form. A .111 BABIP can only get better and Choo, currently getting a couple days’ mental break in Rangersland, does have 7 walks so it’s not like patience has completely gone out the window.

If it doesn’t work out, I’d almost certainly be cutting Young for Hunter Pence, due off the DL in about three weeks.
