Shin-Soo Choo appears likely to serve as the Rangers' primary designated hitter this season.
Choo, 34, was limited to just 48 games last season and increased time out of the DH spot could help him stay on the field. He has expressed reluctance to being a full-time DH, but the Rangers plan to use Mike Napoli as their primary first baseman and hold a competition for left field. "I'm not thinking about that situation," said Choo. "We just started Spring Training. We'll figure it out. I've always wanted what the team wants. That's what I play for. Maybe some day [Banister] will talk to me. He hasn't talked to me yet." Jurickson Profar, Ryan Rua, Delino DeShields, Travis Snider, and Jared Hoying are among the candidates for left field duties.
