Rangers Injury Update: Michael Choice exits with strained hamstring

By on 9/15/2014 06:15:00 AM

The Texas Rangers' injury plagued season continued Sunday as rookie outfielder Michael Choice exited with hamstring tightness.  He will have an MRI today to judge the severity of the injury.
He becomes another member of the Rangers' walking wounded, as they seem to see players going down on a daily basis.

For years, Choice was a top-100 prospect in the Oakland A's system as he had three consecutive seasons with double digit home runs, including one season in which he hit 30.  He was acquired in the offseason in a trade that involved Craig Gentry and was expected to be a contributor in a potent Rangers offense.

However through an up-and-down season in which he has played in 85 games, Choice has struggled to put things together at the plate.  Through 86 games he has homered nine times and driven in 36, but he has batted just .182 and struggled to put together consistent at-bats.

Before being replaced late in the game for a pinch runner, Choice was having a nice afternoon against the Atlanta Braves going 2-3 with a triple and three RBIs. Daniel Robertson replaced him in right field.
