An MRI has revealed that Shin-Soo Choo does not have a high left ankle sprain.

Choo will not play in the series against the A's that ends on Wednesday but we will re-evaluated after Thursday's off day and could be back in the lineup over the weekend. The outfielder injured his ankle while stepping on first base awkwardly during Monday's game, but he's managed to avoid a serious ailment.

Shin-Soo Choo left Monday's game against the A's in the seventh inning due to a sore left ankle and is considered day-to-day.

Choo turned the ankle while trying to beat out an infield hit. His grounder smacked pitcher Fernando Abad and ricocheted toward 3B Josh Donaldson. Choo landed awkwardly on first base while trying to beat out the throw, and Michael Choice was brought on to take over in left field. "Choo could get a day off on Tuesday or be used at designated hitter," reports MLB.com beat writer T.R. Sullivan. The Rangers are slated to face Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone. It should be noted that Choo is off to a spectacular start against southpaws, going 9-for-23.

Shin-Soo Choo ripped his first homer as a Ranger in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Shin-Soo Choo went 2-for-3, singling twice, walking, and scoring two runs against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Choo didn't look so good during the spring, but the more important data is found in the six seasons he's played since becoming a full-time player in 2008. In the first year of a $130 million contract with the Rangers, Choo should be expected to get on base with high frequency, steal 20-plus bases, and hit 20-plus homers.

Shin-Soo Choo's spring struggles continued, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Rangers' 9-3 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

Choo entered the game with a .156/.263/.313 spring slash line in 32 at-bats, and an 0-for-4 afternoon certainly won't help matters. He has recently been bothered by soreness in his left elbow, which could explain the poor performance. The Rangers hope their $130 million man can figure things out with less than two weeks to go until the regular season.

Shin-Soo Choo launched a solo homer and drew a pair of walks versus the Giants Thursday.

He took Ryan Vogelsong deep with an opposite-field shot in the third inning. Soreness in Choo's left elbow is limiting him to DH duty for the time being, but there's clearly nothing wrong with his bat. He should return to playing the field before long.
