Choo avoids disabled list for now
The Rangers are not going to put outfielder Shin-Soo Choo on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle. He will not play again in Oakland and will be re-evaluated in Seattle. It is not a high ankle sprain, which is a more significant injury.
The Rangers instead designated pitcher Hector Noesi for assignment to make room for Nick Martinez. That also opens up a spot on the 40-man roster in case the Rangers want to call up an outfielder from Triple A at some point. Bryan Petersen and Brad Snyder are candidates but not on the 40-man.
