Choo isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

It looks to be just a standard rest day for Choo with lefty C.J. Wilson on the mound for the Angels. With Choo on the bench, Ryan Rua will pick up the start in right field.

Choo went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in the Rangers' win over Baltimore on Monday night.

Working from the No. 2 hole in the order while Rougned Odor was in the leadoff spot, Choo delivered his first multi-hit game since June 13. After a two-game layoff due to back spasms last week, Choo has been in the lineup for five straight contests. He's now hitting .232 with a .314 OBP and nine home runs this season.

Manager Jeff Banister said Choo's back spasms have improved and he may be an option off the bench Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The Rangers recalled Michael Choice from Triple-A Round Rock earlier Wednesday, but it seems he was brought up merely for insurance purposes in case Choo's back injury lingers. While Choo is being held out for a second straight day, his reported improvement bodes well for a return to the starting lineup at some point this weekend against Toronto, if not Thursday.

Choo is dealing with back spasms and is not in Tuesday's lineup, MLB.com's TR Sullivan reports.

He dealt with back spasms back in April, so this is nothing new for the oft-injured right fielder. Ryan Rua will get the start in right field instead Tuesday, and Choo should be considered day-to-day.

Choo has been playing through a sprained left pinkie, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Choo was given the choice to play through the injury or have a pin inserted in his finger and sit out a month, and he has decided to keep playing for now. The injury does not seem to be affecting him too much -- he tallied seven hits over his last five games -- but fantasy owners should be aware that Choo could face a multi-week absence if he changes his mind or the sprain becomes worse.

Choo is not in the lineup Saturday against the Red Sox, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Choo will head to the bench for the first time in May, as manager Jeff Banister goes with Delino DeSheilds in left field and Josh Hamilton in right against southpaw Wade Miley. Look for Choo, who is batting .297/.354/.542 with six homers this month, to be available off the bench and back in the lineup Sunday.

Choo went 2-for-5 Saturday with three runs scored, four RBI and his seventh home run of the season.

He's now hitting a solid .295 (13-for-44) over his last 10 games with three home runs, nine runs scored and eight RBI. Choo looks like he's finally healthy again, but his ice-cold April is still disguising how well he's been hitting in May. Given his poor 2014, you can likely still trade for him at something of a discount if you're looking for offense.
