Fri Jul 603:45Stars and stripes: Sending baseball's best to Washington
NEW YORK (AP) — Now that fan voting is finished, it's a good time to take a hard look at All-Star Game selections.Which players are worthy of participating July 17 in Washington, and who gets left out?Let's touch on this topic first: Shohei Ohtani is incredibly talented and fascinating to watch, but the Los Angeles Angels' two-way Japanese star simply hasn't been on the field enough to earn a spot. Not at pitcher OR designated hitter.Ohtani just returned to the lineup from an elbow injury that's knocked him off the mound for now. He's only made nine major league pitching starts, and the Angels have limited his at-bats all season due to concerns about the rookie's workload.So while it would definitely be fun to see him in baseball's summer showcase, there are several more deserving American League sluggers at DH. It wouldn't be fair to deny one of them in favor of Ohtani. And he's unavailable to pitch at this point.Let him win his invitation next season with a fully healthy and produc... [More]

Sun Jul 100:42Rangers' Choo sits out with sore quad amid 41-game streak
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo didn't play Saturday night for the Texas Rangers because of a sore right quad, putting on hold his majors-best 41-game streak of reaching base.Choo said before the 13-4 win over the Chicago White Sox that he has been dealing with quad soreness for at least 10 days, and that it had really bothered him the last couple of days."I don't want to make it worse," Choo said. "I don't think it's serious."The outfielder/designated hitter said he had an MRI earlier Saturday to find out for sure what he was feeling in his upper leg.Choo had a leadoff walk in the first inning of an 11-3 win Friday night to extend his career-best on-base streak and match the longest in the majors this season. He later hit one of the Rangers' five home runs for a 12-game hitting streak that is the longest active streak in the majors."He's battled with a tight quad and I felt like it was just an opportunity to get him off his legs, give him a day," manager Jeff Banister said.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo is out of the Texas Rangers lineup a night after reaching base in his 41st consecutive game.Choo said before Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox that he has been dealing with a sore right quad for at least 10 days.

But the manager didn't rule out him being a pinch-hitter.Choo's on-base streak is the longest for the Rangers since Otis Nixon's 44-gamer in 1995, and five short of Julio Franco's team record set in 1993.

Tue Jun 2604:31Choo keeps reaching base in Texas with new swing, old focus
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo changed up his swing going into this season with a modified leg kick. Maybe more significant was a return to some of the mental focus he had lost along the way."Every pitch, each pitch, is the last pitch of my baseball career ... I think that way," Choo said.After a slow start to this season, Choo realized he had gotten away from what he refers to as the "sniper focus" he wants to have every time he goes to the plate for the Texas Rangers.Choo now has a 38-game on-base streak. It is the longest of his 14-year big league career, and the second-longest this season behind a 40-gamer by Philadelphia's Odubel Herrera."The physical side of it is a byproduct of him making a conscious effort to get back to who he is, what his foundation has been as a hitter, an on-base guy first," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "When he's doing that and he's seeing pitches, he's focused in more on driving the ball, that he gets to hit his pitch. He's really good at ... [More]
