The 32-year-old Choo struggled in his first season with last-place Texas after signing a $130 million, seven-year contract when he was a free agent last winter.

He was experiencing flu-like symptoms when the team was scheduled to fly to Seattle, prompting the Mariners to put him on the DL immediately.
