Choo continued his hot streak, going 3-for-5 with a triple and a solo home run in the 10-8 loss to the Indians on Saturday.

Aside from a hitless performance yesterday, Choo has a multi-hit game in six straight and is batting .419 over the past week. Clearly, Choo is over his early season slump, and is primed to continue his good production out of the leadoff spot.

Choo was 1-for-3 with a walk in a losing effort against the Rays on Friday night.

Interestingly, he moved to the lead-off spot in the order and reached base twice. Unfortunately he also struck out twice. Choo has been coming around a bit following an abysmal April and now has his average up to a still pathetic .165 on the season. If he stays at the top of the batting order and can get on base, his fantasy value could increase a bit.

Choo recorded a hit for his fourth straight game Tuesday against the Astros, but also struck out in his sixth straight appearance.

Choo has struggled this season, even batting .096 at one point before he was sat down for two games at the end of April. In May, he's driven in four runs in four games but has five total strikeouts.

Choo is out of the lineup Wednesday.

This will be his second straight game out of action, as his batting average has actually dipped to an astonishing .096. It's really hard to say what's wrong with Choo, but manager Jeff Banister said he might give Choo two days off to work on mechanics, so that could be a legitimate problem. Either way, Choo should be held out of lineups in most formats until he can figure it out.

Choo, who is out of the lineup Tuesday, may sit Wednesday as well, Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports.

Manager Jeff Banister is giving Choo a day to "work on mechanics and unplug," and it sounds like the outfielder could sit out Wednesday's series finale against Seattle as well. Choo is off to a dismal 5-for-52 start (.096 average), and has gone hitless in his last 19 at-bats.

Choo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

Choo hasn't been used as a platoon player thus far, but his season is off to an undeniably terrible start, and he's never been good against left-handed pitching. If he doesn't turn things around soon, off days against southpaws could become a semi-regular occurrence.

Choo, who is in a major slump, was dropped to seventh in the Rangers' order Saturday.

This is the first time Choo has been that low in a lineup since 2008, and the drop down is warranted. He is hitting just .119 and slugging just .214, and should probably be on benches for the time being in shallower leagues.

Choo is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, according to Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake.

Choo will be held out Wednesday in order to get another right-handed hitter in the lineup against Angels starter Hector Santiago. Jake Smolinski will get the start in right field in Choo's place.

Choo will bat fifth Tuesday against the Angels.

Choo will fall back down to the No. 5 spot after an 0-for-4, three-strikeout showing in Monday's loss, as Mitch Moreland moves up to the two-hole. The 32-year-old Choo has bounced between the two lineup spots in the early going, but manager Jeff Banister may keep him lower until he gets on track.

Choo (back) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Choo appeared to be a likely candidate to return to the lineup after playing seven innings off the bench in Sunday's 14-inning loss. He'll slot in second in the lineup as the back issue he dealt with the past few days now seems to be behind him.
