    Choo is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Impact

    Choo will retreat to the bench for Wednesday's series finale with no DH spot available in the Diamondbacks' home park. Look for the veteran, who is hitting .286/.390/.486 with five RBI through 10 games, to rejoin the lineup Friday against the A's.

    News

    Choo went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two runs, a walk and three RBI in the Rangers' 11-4 win over the Angels on Thursday.

    Impact

    Choo wreaked havoc from atop the order in this contest, lacing a pair of two-baggers and driving in three of the Rangers' runs in the blowout victory. He was off to a slow start, so it was good to see the breakout effort for the 36-year-old veteran. This multi-hit effort shot his batting average up from .167 to .238 over 21 at-bats.
