Remember that sore left side that was going to keep Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo out for a few days?  Yeah, try a few weeks.  That’s the word from Zack Meisel at MLB.com, who says that it’s a strained oblique that is going to require Choo to be on the shelf for at least two weeks.

Given that there are around four weeks left in the season and that, last night’s win and the Tigers’ loss notwithstanding, the Indians seem to be slowly falling out of the AL Central race, this may be it for the year for Choo.

A lost season in so many ways for the guy.
