Choo is out of Saturday's lineup against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

He is hitting .244/.293/.478 with five home runs over 90 at-bats this month. Choo has tied his career high with 22 home runs on the season, and his 96 runs are the second most he has compiled over a full MLB season. Nomar Mazara gets the start at DH, hitting cleanup.

Choo went 1-for-2 with a home run, two walks, two RBI and two runs in Friday's 5-3 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

The long ball -- which was Choo's career high-tying 22nd of the season -- was only his second hit in his last 15 at-bats. Choo is struggling to the finish line with a .244 average and .293 on-base percentage in September, but he'll still be worth keeping active in the Rangers' final two games if he's in the lineup. Due to his presence near the top of the order and ability to draw a walk, Choo is always a threat to put runs up for fantasy owners even amid slumps.

Choo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

Choo tallied five hits, including two home runs, over his last two games, but he will still get a day off Saturday. Nomar Mazara will take Choo's place in right field, and Delino DeShields will replace Mazara in left field.

Choo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Thursday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

It's been another solid cross-category showing from the veteran outfielder, as Choo is now up to 20 homers, 75 RBI, 12 stolen bases and 93 runs with a .264/.359/.421 slash line. Those numbers move the needle in the majority of settings, and Choo's role in the top third of the Texas lineup has helped his fantasy floor and game-to-game consistency.

Choo went 2-for-4 with a run and RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Choo stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth inning and came close to delivering the Rangers' second grand slam of the night, but he was forced to settle for a sacrifice fly after Mariners center fielder Guillermo Heredia robbed him at the wall. Though he missed out on a bigger night, Choo's two-hit performance spelled an end to a 3-for-20 slump over the previous six contests.

Choo went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Choo was far from the only Rangers hitter to struggle with making contact Sunday, as Angels pitchers struck out 15 of the 35 batters they faced on the afternoon. That being said, Choo has still been lagging offensively over the last five contests, managing only three hits in 17 at-bats while scoring one run and driving in two. The brief skid won't result in Choo's removal from an everyday role, however, so fantasy owners who have been depending on him all season should continue to deploy him as normal.

Choo went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run in Monday's 5-3 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Choo's RBI came on a second-inning double, with leadoff man Delino DeShields' game-changing speed aiding the veteran's production. DeShields and Choo have formed an excellent tandem at the top of the order due to the strong on-base skills both possess, with Choo's power hitting also providing an ideal complement to DeShields' baserunning skills. Choo has already tallied six extra-base hits in 36 at-bats in September.

Choo went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs in Friday's 11-5 win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Choo has strangely drawn just one walk over his last 20 games, but thanks to some improved contact and good fortune on balls in play, he's delivered a .350 on-base percentage during that span. Fantasy owners will certainly trade the uptick in Choo's average for the dip in plate discipline, as the outfielder is now sitting at a respectable .264 mark for the season.

Choo is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Choo will head to the bench for a breather after going 1-for-5 in Game 1. With no DH available in Atlanta, the Rangers will trot out an outfield of Delino DeShields, Carlos Gomez and Nomar Mazara (from left to right) in his place.
