Rangers’ Choo to have season-ending elbow surgery

SEATTLE – Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled for surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow and will miss the rest of the season.

Choo was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday, and the Rangers recalled outfielder Michael Choice from Triple-A Round Rock.

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 Rangers to put him on the DL immediately.

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 RBI in 123 games.
