      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Back in lineup Wednesday

      Andrus (suspension) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's. After serving his one-game suspension Tuesday, Andrus will reclaim his spot at shortstop and bat seventh in the order against Oakland lefty Rich Hill. Andrus has performed well against southpaws this season, slashing .333/.357/.519 in 27 at-bats. With Andrus' return Wednesday, Hanser Alberto will return to the bench.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Will serve suspension Tuesday

      Andrus will not appeal his one-game suspension and will serve it Tuesday night, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. It's typical for players to appeal suspensions when handed them, but it appears Andrus will simply take his medicine for his role in Sunday's brawl with the Blue Jays and be done with the matter. It remains to be seen if Ian Desmond or Hanser Alberto will fill in at shortstop in Andrus' place Tuesday, but Andrus figures to be back in his regular role for the Rangers' next game Wednesday afternoon.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Handed one-game suspension

      Andrus has been suspended one game for his role in Sunday's brawl with the Blue Jays, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Andrus was levied a one-game penalty for throwing a punch at Toronto's Kevin Pillar during Sunday's melee. The report did not confirm one way or another, but Andrus figures to appeal the suspension and continue playing for the time being.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Is not in Thursday's lineup

      Andrus is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Andrus has started 15 consecutive games, so a day off to rest is much needed. The 27-year-old is off to a fantastic start this season, hitting .293/.323/.413 with eight extra-base hits and 13 RBI through 26 games this season.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Not in lineup Wednesday

      Andrus is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners. Andrus has gotten off to an excellent start to the season, batting .357 through eight games, but he'll get the day off Wednesday regardless. Hanser Alberto will take his spot at shortstop and bat eighth.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Picks up three hits Tuesday

      Andrus went 3-for-4 with his first double of the season, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-0 shellacking of the Mariners. Andrus' .387 OBP would set a new career high, which makes it all the more frustrating that the speedy Venezuelan is yet to nab a steal on three attempts after topping 20 in each of his first seven MLB campaigns. He's making up for it by contributing elsewhere for now, but history and his place in the bottom third of the Texas batting order suggest there's a ceiling on the 27-year-old's production.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Produces at plate

      Andrus went 0-for-1 at the plate but had a sacrifice fly and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Angels. He was also caught stealing for the second time this season. Hitting eighth in the lineup, Andrus is making the most of his at-bats thus far with a .686 OPS. He will need to continue his strong production as he battles for playing time at shortstop with Hanser Alberto.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Out of Wednesday's lineup

      Andrus is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. He started the season 2-for-6 with a RBI, a walk and a strikeout. This seems a little early in the year for Andrus to be getting the day off, but Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and hit ninth, nonetheless.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Returns to action

      Andrus (illness) returned to action Friday, going 1-for-2 with a single and a strikeout against Seattle. He was the latest in Rangers camp to be bit by the flu bug, but Andrus was right back in the lineup a day after being sent home. At 27 years old, Andrus already has 4635 plate appearances under his belt in the majors and may not have another level to his game, but he's been very durable and a consistent stolen base contributor from the shortstop position.
