Andrus went 2-for-5 with a walk, run and RBI in Saturday's 17-7 win over the White Sox. Andrus' power production has tapered off a bit of late with only one extra-base hit in his last eight games, but he's still been plenty valuable for fantasy owners during that time with a .303 average and 10 runs. Even with the minor dip in his slugging percentage of late, Andrus has maintained a personal-best .813 OPS for the season and has a shot at joining the 20-homer/20-steal club for the first time in his career.
Andrus went 3-for-5 with a home run, a walk, three runs scored, four RBI and a steal in Wednesday's 12-6 win over the Tigers. Andrus broke a 4-4 tie in the fifth inning with his 16th home run of the season and drove in two more runs with a single one inning later before adding another RBI single in the seventh. The veteran shortstop has made great advancements in the power department, already doubling last season's previous best of eight long balls in 32 fewer games while blowing his career .368 slugging percentage out of the water with a .483 mark. That extra pop hasn't come at the cost of his trademark speed, as Andrus' steal was his 23rd.
Andrus went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 6-4 win over the Astros. The 28-year-old's power surge continues -- having already shattered his previous career high with 15 homers, Andrus has now taken aim at a new personal best in doubles and sits just two back of the 35 he collected in 2014 after rapping out seven in his last six games.
Andrus went 0-for-6 with two stolen bases and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Mets. After a blistering seven-game stretch in which he went 14-for-29 at the plate, Andrus has gone 1-for-10 over the past two contests, but the pair of steals he picked up Wednesday should lessen the sting of the minor skid. Both Andrus' batting average and on-base percentage are down from a season ago, but with the shortstop showcasing more power than ever and still remaining active on the bases, his overall fantasy value has risen to new heights in 2017.
Andrus went 3-for-4 with two doubles in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Twins. Andrus has amassed five doubles over the last three games, bringing his total to 31 -- just four shy of matching his career-best mark from 2014. Though he's hitting for more power this season than ever before, Andrus hasn't had to sacrifice much of the contact-hitting skills that have been a hallmark during his nine years in the majors. His 16.7 percent strikeout rate is the worst mark of his career, but it's still far better than the MLB average.
