Choi provided the Rays with a quality bat last year posting an .877 OPS in 189 plate appearances. He has totaled 17 homers in 317 career at-bats in the big leagues. The 27-year-old was a strong hitter at Triple-A as well posting a .297 average and 35 long balls in 303 games. He started 44 games as Tampa Bay's designated hitter and just one at first base in 2018, but he will become their regular there with Jake Bauers and C.J. Cron no longer on the team.
