Choo had been red hot of late and was hitting .327/.401/.506 overall. A left-handed hitter, he could move right into the same platoon role Reed occupied with Willie Bloomquist. Maybe he won't play quite that much initially, but he's definitely worth picking up in AL-only leagues. If he does get a couple of hundred at-bats over the rest of the season, he could swipe 10-12 bases.

Platoon? Boo. :-t

Snelling

Postby ChurchillJA » Mon Jul 03, 2006 6:45 pm

Snelling is a major league hitter who has been injured seven times since 2000.

Twice he's had ACL surgery on the same knee.

With regular play in the bigs, he's probably a .300/.380/.475 guy.

Will Carroll at Baseball Prospectus is saying that he hears that Reed will need season-ending surgery, so Choo could play a lot this year. But those looking at him as a keeper should reconsider-- he has to return to Korea for his 2-year military service obligation (or else never return home) since he didn't make the WBC team that had their service time waived as a result of how well they did.

According to a Seattle Times article written in March, the Mariners believe they may be able to work around Korea's military service requirement in Choo's case.
Seattle Times wrote:What does have him nervous is the prospect of spending two years in the South Korean military. It is a mandatory commitment, and he said he is scheduled to serve at the end of the season when his passport expires.

"My agent, Benny Looper, and Jim Na are trying to work something out," Choo said. "Hopefully they will. I love baseball. It is something I think about, but not a lot."

Na is the Mariners' baseball administration director.

Looper, the Mariners' vice president of player development, said he is confident Choo will not have to serve after the season.

"I think he is OK [here] for the next couple of years."

Knowing Hargrove Choo will most likely begin splitting time with Bloomquist because Mikey Mike just loves finding ways of putting him in the lineup. :-t
