Tampa Bay's Ji-Man Choi receives a breather on Friday

Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Ji-Man Choi is out of Friday's Game 6 lineup against the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Choi will sit against Houston left-hander Framber Valdez after the Rays announced Yandy Diaz and Mike Brosseau as Game 6's starting first and second basemen.

In 27 postseason at-bats this season, Choi is hitting .259 with two home runs and four RBI.
