Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Productive in win
Andrus went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs in a win over the Mariners on Tuesday.
Both of the veteran's hits actually culminated with runs crossing the plate for the Athletics, but his seventh-inning single, which resulted in Sean Murphy scoring the go-ahead run, came as a result of Jesse Winker's error in left field. Andrus' season line is still a lackluster .227/.303/.328, yet he boasts a .316 average and .828 OPS across his last 13 games.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Swinging blistering bat
Andrus, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in a loss to the Twins on Monday, is hitting .467 (7-for-15) with an RBI, two walks and a run in the last five games.
The brief but impressive surge has quickly boosted the veteran shortstop's average from .183 to .231. Andrus' hot streak is reminiscent of his much longer breakout in 2021 following a similarly dreadful start, one that saw him furnish a .273 average and .325 on-base percentage over his final 100 games after carrying .174 and .219 figures in those categories as late as May 24....

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Dealing with minor injury
Andrus will sit for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Tigers due to a knot in his shin, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Andrus was involved in an outfield collision with Chad Pinder in the Athletics' 6-0 loss in Game 1, though both players remained in the contest. Manager Mark Kotsay noted that the shin injury Andrus picked up in the first game is to the opposite shin he had surgically repaired in September, so Andrus doesn't look to be dealing with anything significant. In Andrus' absence for Game 2, Kevin Smith will shift to shortstop.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Struggling at plate
Andrus, who went 1-for-4 with a hit-by-pitch and two runs in Friday's loss to the Guardians, is hitting .185 (5-for-27) with three walks, eight strikeouts and three runs overall across the last eight games.
The veteran shortstop opened the season on a tear at the plate by posting a .364 average across his first six games, but he's mostly been in a deep funk since then. Andrus did struggle for most of the first two months of last season before picking up some steam, as he was slashing .207/.262/.264 as late as June 10 before picking up the pace by hitting .266 over his final 85 games....

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: On base four times Tuesday
Andrus went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run in a win over the Orioles on Tuesday.
The veteran shortstop was a thorn in the side of Orioles pitching in the low-scoring affair, snapping out of an 0-for-12 funk in the process. Andrus had gotten off to a hot start at the plate prior to his aforementioned four-game slide, and perhaps Tuesday's busy night will kickstart another stretch of success with the bat.... See More ...

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Gets first day off
Andrus is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
The veteran infielder will take a seat for the first time this season while Kevin Smith receives a turn at shortstop.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Belts first homer among three hits
Andrus went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, three total RBI and two total runs in Monday's 13-2 victory versus the Rays.
Andrus came into the contest with just two hits across 11 at-bats to start the campaign, but he padded his season stat line considerably with the three-hit performance Monday. The veteran infielder contributed one of four Oakland long balls in the contest, belting a three-run shot to left field in the second inning to stake the A's to an early eight-run lead. Andrus hadn't shown much power in recent seasons, hitting just six homers over 600 at-bats between 2020 and 2021.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Solid spring corroborates health
Andrus, who underwent a pair of surgeries for a fractured fibula this offseason, finished Cactus League play with a .281 average (9-for-32), two doubles, a triple, a home run and four RBI.
The veteran shortstop was able to get a good tune-up in for the regular season and build confidence in his surgically repaired leg in the process. Andrus is particularly trending in the right direction at the plate as Opening Day approaches, as he finished Cactus League play with a four-game hitting streak after a slow start.... See More ...

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Starting Friday
Andrus (lower leg) is starting at shortstop and batting second in Friday's spring game against the Angels, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Andrus suffered a fractured fibula in late September and required two surgeries to repair the injury, but it appears he's a full go for spring training since he's starting the opener. The veteran shortstop struggled during his first year in Oakland during 2021 with a .243/.294/.320 slash line and three homers, 60 runs, 37 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 146 games.... See More ...

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Progressing well from procedures
Andrus (lower leg) has been running the bases over the past month and could be free of restrictions to open spring training, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Andrus underwent two procedures to repair the fractured left fibula he sustained while scoring a game-winning run against the Astros on Sept. 25. While the 33-year-old should be able to take part in drills unencumbered based on manager Mark Kotsay's latest comments, Andrus will likely be eased into exhibition action. The veteran posted a .243/.294/.320 slash line across 146 games last season, but with his dependable defense and contact rate, he still projects to serve as the primary option at shortstop if healthy to open the season....

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Undergoes two procedures
Andrus (lower leg) underwent surgery Wednesday to address a fractured left fibula and to repair a sprain of the the upper ankle.

The 33-year-old remains under contract with Oakland next season and is expected to be healthy in time for spring training. He slashed .243/.294/.320 with three homers, 25 doubles, 37 RBI, 60 runs and 12 stolen bases in 146 games during 2021.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Heading for X-rays
Andrus will undergo X-rays after feeling a pop in his left ankle during Saturday's win against the Astros, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Andrus suffered the injury while scoring the game-winning run as the A's walked off the Astros in the ninth inning. The veteran shortstop should be considered day-to-day until the results of the X-rays are known, though he at least seems unlikely to be in the lineup for Sunday's series finale.... See More ...
