Michael Choice said his hamstring injury is "no big deal."

He suffered the injury on Monday but expects to have full range of activities in the near future. Choice spent most of 2015 in the minors. Even with Abraham Almonte suspended and Michael Brantley recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, Choice faces long odds to make the big league roster.

Michael Choice tweaked a hamstring on Monday.

He missed a week of Rangers camp last spring with a similar injury and wound up being optioned to Triple-A Round Rock in mid-March. Choice was probably ticketed for Triple-A Columbus anyway. Cleveland pushed the 26-year-old outfielder off its 40-man roster in November and he passed through waivers unclaimed.

Indians sent OF Michael Choice outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Choice was pushed off the Indians' 40-man roster last week. He has accepted a non-roster invite to spring training in 2016 and figures to open the year at Columbus.

Indians designated OF Michael Choice for assignment.

Choice gets the boot off the 40-man roster after Wednesday's acquisition of Kirby Yates. The former top prospect was acquired from the Rangers back in August and could soon be with his third organization in the past four months.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 02:02:00 PM

Indians acquired OF Michael Choice from the Rangers for cash considerations.

The former top prospect was designated for assignment earlier in the week to make room on the Rangers roster for Will Venable. He'll provide outfield depth in Cleveland.

Rangers designated OF Michael Choice for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Will Venable. Choice, a former top-100 prospect, has stalled in his third go-round at Triple-A this season, batting just .244/.309/.399. He's still just 25, so there might be some interest on waivers.

Rangers optioned OF Michael Choice to Triple-A Round Rock.

Michael Choice was only in the majors for one day and struck out in his lone at-bat. Spencer Patton has been recalled from Round Rock in a corresponding move.
Thu, Jun 25, 2015 11:16:00 AM

Rangers recalled OF Michael Choice from Triple-A Round Rock.

Choice has posted an underwhelming .242/.299/.404 slash line in 61 games this season at the Triple-A level. He has some pop but is doubtful to carry fantasy relevance.
Wed, Jun 24, 2015 04:06:00 PM

Rangers optioned OF Michael Choice to Triple-A Round Rock; reassigned C Pat Cantwell, LHP Martire Garcia, RHP Alec Asher to minor league camp.

Choice didn't do much to get into the left field mix by going just 1-for-16 this spring. The 24-year-old batted just .182/.250/.320 with nine homers over 86 games with the Rangers last season and will try to earn another opportunity with his performance in the minors.
Tue, Mar 17, 2015 11:57:00 AM

Michael Choice (hamstring) has been shut down for the season.

Choice strained his left hamstring legging out a double on Sunday and has been ruled out for the rest of the year. The 24-year-old batted just .182/.250/.320 with nine homers over 86 games with the Rangers this season and is unlikely to have a significant role going into 2015.

Michael Choice went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Braves.

Choice had an RBI triple in the second inning before knocking a two-run double in the Rangers' six-run fifth inning. Choice has that kind of power and ability, but strikeouts and inconsistency have hurt him. The 24-year-old is hitting .182/.250/.320 on the year. He left Sunday's game with a strained left hamstring and could be in danger of an early shutdown.

Michael Choice left Sunday's game against the Braves with a strained left hamstring.

Choice will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury. Fantasy owners relying on him over the final two weeks may want to look elsewhere.
Sun, Sep 14, 2014 06:04:00 PM

Michael Choice went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's 13-6 win over the Astros.

Choice returned to the majors this week after it was announced that Shin-Soo Choo needed season-ending surgery to remove a bone spur from his ankle. The 24-year-old is still batting just .179/.251/.330 over 73 games this season, but he has some pop in his bat and should be worth using in AL-only leagues down the stretch if the playing time is there.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 12:38:00 AM

Rangers recalled OF Michael Choice from Triple-A Round Rock.

Choice has batted just .177 with eight homers and a .565 OPS over 219 plate appearances this season with the big club. He'll play regularly against left-handers over the final month.
