    • Andrus went 2-for-4 at the dish in Wednesday's 12-2 loss to the Astros. With the Rangers eliminated from playoff contention, manager Jeff Banister has decided to shut down Andrus' regular mate on the left side of the infield, Adrian Beltre, for the remainder of the season, but it doesn't look like a similar fate will await the shortstop. Andrus, who has put together back-to-back two-hit games, has suited up in all but three of the Rangers' contests this season, and since his health seems to be on solid ground, he'll likely be given the leeway to continue playing through the weekend. The prospect of regular at-bats over the final four games will give Andrus a shot at besting the career-high .302 average he posted in 2016; he's currently sitting at .299 for the season.

    • Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Notches 25th stolen base
      By RotoWire Staff

      Andrus went 1-for-4 with a steal and a run in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Astros. The stolen base was Andrus' 25th of the season, marking the seventh time in his career that he's reached that benchmark. Contrary to previous seasons, however, Andrus has accompanied that steal total with career-best power production, with his 20 home runs more than doubling up his previous top mark (eight in 2016). The 20-20 season has helped vault Andrus into the elite ranks of fantasy shortstops in 2017.

    • Andrus went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Mariners. Andrus' second base hit of the evening helped put the game on ice for the Rangers, as it drove home Delino DeShields for an insurance run in the top of the eighth inning. It was Andrus' 86th RBI of the season, one of many categories in which the shortstop has established new career highs.

    • Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Goes hitless in series finale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Andrus went 0-for-3 at the dish in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Mariners. After a red-hot August and strong start to September, Andrus has cooled off over the past six games, going 3-for-19 with three walks. The minor slump shouldn't prompt Andrus' fantasy owners to take him out of the lineup, as he's been one of the top performing shortstops all season and should play nearly every day with the Rangers still fighting for a playoff spot.

    • Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Drives home three Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Andrus went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, three RBI and a run in Friday's 11-5 win over the Yankees. Andrus' breakout season as a power hitter refuses to end, as the shortstop has now compiled 11 extra-base knocks -- including four home runs -- just in his last 10 games. He should continue to pile up the RBI in September now that on-base machines Delino DeShields and Shin-Soo Choo are locked into the top two spots in the batting order.
