Texas Rangers left fielder Shin-Soo Choo will likely avoid the disabled list after an MRI exam showed that the he did not have a high left ankle sprain.

The team says Choo is day-to-day, and is not expected to play until Friday against the Seattle Mariners at the earliest.

Choo was injured in Monday's game against the Oakland Athletics when he stepped on first base awkwardly. He was removed from the game and replaced by Michael Choice, who will also start on Tuesday.

"We’re hoping this is an indication that we’ve bottomed out and we’re heading in the right direction from an injury standpoint,” assistant general manager Thad Levine said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We’ve been overdue on some positive news from the training staff. This certainly is a silver lining to what was a concern injury that we thought we had last night.”

The Rangers already have 11 players on the disabled list and come into Tuesday's contest with 12-8 record, 1.5 games back of the Athletics.
