Andrus is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels. Andrus is hitting just .179/.247/.284 with two homers through 18 games in September, so he'll head to the bench for Monday's series opener in an attempt to clear his head. Hanser Alberto is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in this one.
Andrus went 0-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Rays. Andrus told Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News that's he's felt better in the last week or so than at any time since returning from an elbow injury in June. That may be the case, but one can't deduce that from his numbers. He doesn't have an extra-base hit or RBI over his last 10 games, a stretch in which he's hitting .103 (4-for-39).
Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres. Andrus will head to the bench for the second straight Sunday, allowing utility man Jurickson Profar to pick up a start at shortstop. It's been a rough September thus far for the 30-year-old, who has gone 9-for-48 (.188 average) and has drawn only three walks in 12 starts.
Andrus is not in the lineup Sunday against the Athletics. Andrus hasn't gotten a day off since late July, so he'll head to the bench to rest. Jurickson Profar will slide over to replace him at shortstop, allowing Willie Calhoun to fill the void.
Andrus went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Giants. Andrus' third-inning double plated Rougned Odor, tying the game at one apiece, but Texas could muster little else against former Ranger Derek Holland. For Andrus, the hit snapped an 0-for-11 run, which is the most recent phase of a longer slump. Since his four-hit performance against the Yankees on Aug. 10, the shortstop is hitting .172 (10-for-58) with three RBI over 13 games.
