Choo (forearm) admits that his 2016 regular season is over but he's aiming for a possible return during the ALCS if Texas advances that far, RYan Posner of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Choo can be safely dropped in single-league formats obviously but we should know how realistic his goal of playing in some possible playoff scenarios will be over the course of the next month as his rehab progresses.

Choo will have a plate inserted in his forearm Wednesday and the Rangers have not released a timetable for his return, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder suffered a broken forearm Monday when he was hit by a pitch, marking yet another significant injury for him this season. The Rangers will likely provide a timetable after the procedure is complete, but there is a distinct possibility that Choo will miss most if not all of the rest of the regular season.

Choo was diagnosed with a broken forearm after being hit by a pitch in Monday's game against Oakland, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

In all likelihood, this signals the end to an injury-riddled season for Choo. The 34-year-old will make his fourth trip to the disabled list after playing in just 45 games, his fewest since 2007. If this is the end, Choo will finish the season with a .247 average and just 17 RBI. In his absence, Nomar Mazara will likely receive more regular playing time in the outfield

Choo was forced to leave the game Monday after being hit by a pitch in the wrist, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is awful luck for Choo, who returned from a back injury on August 4, although he was hitting just .220/.360/.268 in 11 games back. We'll update if the Rangers provide any updates before the night is over, but Choo will probably need to undergo X-rays or other examination before a timetable becomes apparent.

Choo (back) was activated off the disabled list Thursday, and will be in the lineup for the Rangers' game against Baltimore, John Blake of the Rangers' front office reports.

EDGE Analysis

Choo was placed on the DL on July 20 with lower back inflammation, but returned to the club prior to Thursday's game. He will leadoff and play his normal spot in right as the team faces Wade Miley in his first start for the Orioles.

Choo (back) hopes to come off the DL when eligible next Thursday, T,R, Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Choo will take live swings off Derek Holland on Tuesday, clearing the way for a very brief rehab assignment. Choo is expected to resume his role as Texas' leadoff hitter once healthy, and could be a nice source of production down the stretch given Texas' home-heavy finish.

Choo (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with low back inflammation, John Blake of the Rangers' front office reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the third time this season that Choo has landed on the 15-day DL, with the first two coming from a right calf strain and a left hamstring strain. Choo can't seem to stay healthy, but this injury does not appear to be very serious, and the 34-year-old could be back in 10 days. In his place, the team has brought up Daniel DeShields Jr. to help out in the meantime.

Choo will lead off as the designated hitter for Tuesday's game against the Angels, John Blake of the Rangers' front office reports.

EDGE Analysis

Choo made an appearance in Monday's loss as a pinch hitter after dealing with back pain that has plagued him since early July. The 33-year-old will face Tim Lincecum during his first game back in the lineup on this side of the All-Star break.

Choo (back) was held out of Monday's starting lineup but was able to make a pinch-hit appearance.

EDGE Analysis

It's widely expected that Choo will be back in the starting lineup Tuesday as a result of his appearance in Monday's game, so those Choo owners in daily formats will want to check back as game time nears.
