  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Strikes deal with ChiSox

    Andrus and the White Sox agreed to a contract Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    The White Sox are expected to officially announce Andrus' signing Friday, when the 33-year-old is set to join the team in Cleveland for its series opener with the Guardians. Before he was released by the Athletics on Wednesday, Andrus had been a regular starter in the infield, slashing .237/.301/.373 with eight home runs, seven stolen bases, 41 RBI and 30 runs in 386 plate appearances. Though he didn't fit in with Oakland's rebuilding plans, Andrus should be an ideal short-term fit for the White Sox, who are expected to be without top shortstop Tim Anderson (hand) until at least mid-to-late September. The White Sox will likely plug in Andrus as their new primary option at the position, leaving rookies Lenyn Sosa and Romy Gonzalez on the outside looking in for playing time.

  • Elvis Andrus: Released by Oakland

    Andrus was released by the Athletics on Wednesday.

    Andrus saw inconsistent playing time over the first several weeks in August and will ultimately part ways with the club after Sheldon Neuse was recalled Wednesday. Andrus was traded from the Rangers to the Athletics ahead of the 2021 campaign, but he had a lackluster showing over his year and a half in Oakland. The 33-year-old slashed .241/.297/.342 with 11 homers, 101 runs, 67 RBI and 19 stolen bases over 252 games with the Athletics but will now seek out other opportunities for the final two months of the season.

  • Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Hits eighth homer

    Andrus went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a hit-by-pitch in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

    Andrus snapped a 12-game homer drought with his seventh-inning blast. He's up to eight long balls this season while slashing .237/.301/.373 with 30 RBI, 41 runs scored and seven stolen bases through 386 plate appearances. Andrus has seen his playing time slip a bit lately as the Athletics evaluate Nick Allen's play at shortstop. Considering the Athletics are far out of contention, Andrus could slip into a part-time role as the team finds more time for prospects to gain experience.

  • Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Steps out of lineup

  • Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Gets Sunday off

    Andrus is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Nick Allen will move over from the keystone to step in at shortstop in place of Andrus. With a .777 OPS since the beginning of July, Andrus has been one of the Athletics' more productive hitters over the past month and change, so the 33-year-old should continue to see the majority of the starts at shortstop even though he doesn't necessarily fit into Oakland's rebuilding effort.
