Rangers Injury Update: Shin-Soo Choo has ankle surgery

By on 9/17/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Texas Rangers entered Tuesday night's game against the Oakland A's at 57-92, last in the American League West. The dismal season can be largely attributed to injuries, as 12 players are currently on the 60-day disabled list. One of the injured players, Shin-Soo Choo, underwent season ending surgery last month. To make matters worse, he will now undergo another surgery unrelated to his first surgery.

Our own Pete Schwichtenberg reported on August 26 that Choo had a bone spur in his left hand and would undergo season ending surgery.

But that wasn't the last time Choo would go under the knife this season. Aaron Gleeman of reported that Choo underwent another surgery to repair torn cartilage in his ankle.  T.R. Sullivan of reported that the surgery requires 6-to-8 week timetable for recovery.

Choo, in his 10th Major League season, finished with a 242 average with 13 home runs and 40 RBI in 123 games.  Choo's best season was in 2010 when he hit .300 with 22 home runs and 90 RBI.  The veteran has played for the Mariners, Indians and Rangers and has a career batting average of .282 with 117 home runs and 467 RBI.
