Tribe brushes off concern over Choo
Outfielder given clean bill of health after being evaluated by team's staff
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- A week ago, Shin-Soo Choo's left arm condition had the makings of an international incident. By Wednesday, the Indians were brushing it off as a "non-issue."Choo, in Arizona to train with the South Korean World Baseball Classic team, was evaluated by the Indians' medical and training staffs at the Player Development Complex on Tuesday and checked out fine. Cleveland had expressed concern over the soreness Choo was feeling in his left triceps, just above his surgically repaired elbow, before the first round of the Classic.
