SURPRISE, Ariz. — Shin-Soo Choo started spring 0 for 12 before having hits in three consecutive games. He went 0 for 2 on Saturday and his average is sitting at .176.But Choo isn’t too concerned about the early numbers.“In spring training, I try to see the most pitches I can,” he said. “Sometimes when I make two strikes and take a two-strike approach, I see a lot of off-speed.”Choo said some springs he needs as many as 70 at-bats to get his timing down, while others he only needs 30 or 40. For now, he’s pleased that he’s hitting the ball in the middle of the park.“Every game I play, it’s getting better,” Choo said.
