PHOENIX -- During Saturday's exhibition contest against Oakland, Michael Choice gave the A's a glimpse of what they're missing.

After being dealt to Texas for Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom in December, Choice laced a double to left-center field to lead off the second inning in his first at-bat against his former club.

"It was fun," the 24-year-old Choice said. "It was exciting to look over there and see some of the guys that were familiar. Just have fun with it. Don't let it become a tense environment that causes stress."

He's only played in three games thus far, but it appears Choice is having plenty of fun in a Rangers uniform, with three hits in six at-bats.

"I feel like I've been seeing the ball well -- it goes to the work that I've been doing in the cages, working with all our hitting guys in the morning and really honing in," Choice said.
