Chooing Over Choo’s Value

Despite posting a 20-20 season as recently as 2013, last season left just about every Shin-soo Choo owner more than a little disappointed.

The offensive production from that position was atrocious, sitting at dead last in the Major Leagues in runs (56), home runs (5), and OPS (.651).
