News: Choo is scheduled for surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow and will miss the rest of the season. The 32-year-old Choo struggled in his first season with last-place Texas after signing a $130 million, seven-year contract when he was a free agent last winter. He batted .242 with 13 home runs and 40 RBIs in 123 games. Impact: Choo was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday. The operation is set for Sept. 15, but it could be moved up to Friday if Choo's illness subsides. He was experiencing flu-like symptoms when the team was scheduled to fly to Seattle, prompting the Mariners to put him on the DL immediately. (STATS, 11:45pm)

News: Choo has a bone spur in his left elbow and is done for the season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports. Impact: He has been dealing with bone spurs since spring training, and with the Rangers out of contention and Choo dealing with pain, surgery made sense. Michael Choice has been recalled from Triple-A, and he will presumably get some chances at designated hitter. It was basically a lost season for Choo, as he posted just a .242 average with 13 home runs and three steals in 123 games. Much of his struggles have been attributed to playing through injury, so there's a chance he could rebound if he's healthy for the start of the 2015 season. He will have surgery as soon as Friday, if the flu he's dealing with has cleared out.(RotoWire, )

News: Choo is not in Monday's lineup. Impact: This will be his second straight day out of the lineup, with J.P. Arencibia getting the start at DH Monday. There has been no word of an injury for Choo, but his .242/.340/.374 slash line doesn't warrant automatic inclusion in the Rangers' lineup at this point in the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Choo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals. Impact: Choo will take a seat Sunday with the left-handed Jason Vargas toeing the rubber for the Royals. Adrian Beltre will slot in has the designated hitter Sunday, while Adam Rosales will take over at third base.(RotoWire, )

News: Choo went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored against the Angels on Saturday night. Impact: The blast was the 12th of the season for Choo, who had previously homered Sunday against the Astros. For Choo, strikeouts have been an issue throughout the season, and he's currently on pace to post the highest strikeout rate of his career (24.9 percent).(RotoWire, )
