Shin-Soo Choo is out of the Texas Rangers lineup a night after reaching base in his 41st consecutive game.
Choo said before Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox that he has been dealing with a sore right quad for at least 10 days. He said it has really bothered him the last couple of days.
Manager Jeff Banister said it was a chance to get Choo off his legs with a day off. But the manager didn't rule out him being a pinch-hitter.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Choo's on-base streak is the longest for the Rangers since Otis Nixon's 44-gamer in 1995, and five short of Julio Franco's team record set in 1993. Choo matched Philadelphia's Odubel Herrera for the longest in the majors this season.
