Profile: Choo's list of injuries suffered this season reads like a novel, and includes missing time with a strained calf, strained hamstring, back inflammation, and a fractured forearm. The various maladies limited him to just 210 plate appearances, but most of his underlying skills remained intact. Amazingly, he has posted a double digit walk rate in literally every single season of his career since he debuted in 2005, which makes him a perfect top of the order hitter. His BABIP dropped below .300 for the first time, but his batted ball profile remained pristine, loaded with line drives and avoidance of the dreaded pop-up. So, that mark should jump back above .300, ensuring his batting average doesn't kill you again. At age 34, age-related decline will be looking to rear its ugly head, but he could still be a nice undervalued option, especially in OBP leagues. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Choo missed most of the season thanks to multiple injuries, but he still provides power, the potential for a touch of speed, and a strong runs scored total thanks to excellent OBP marks. Age is obviously an issue, but his skills remain stable.
