Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has indicated that Shin-Soo Choo could see lots of time in the designated hitter spot next season in an effort to keep him healthy.
"I’d prefer not to have a set DH," Daniels said. "Some of it is going to depend on health and what all we do. I think [Choo] takes a lot of pride in going out there defensively, but we need his bat in the lineup. That’s the priority." Choo made four trips to the disabled list in 2016, playing in only 48 games. He hasn't rated well in defensive metrics the last few seasons, anyway, so putting his bat in the DH spot to give him a better shot to stay on the field makes sense. Of course, a lot could depend on what the Rangers do this offseason, as Ian Desmond, Carlos Gomez and Carlos Beltran are all impending free agents. Oct 28 - 9:57 AM
