Shin-Soo Choo leaves game with back spasms

3 Comments

Because apparently the Rangers’ injury woes are carrying over for another season, outfielder Shin-Soo Choo exited today’s game with back spasms just moments after left-hander Derek Holland was forced out of his start with shoulder soreness.

Choo had a rough first season of a seven-year, $130 million contract, playing just 123 games due to ankle and elbow problems and posting a career-worst .714 OPS.

Jake Smolinski replaced Choo in right field.
