Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Promising spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus batted .333 (6-for-18) with three walks, a run scored and one stolen base over nine spring games.

Although he provided value in steals (31) in 2019, Andrus was put on notice late in the season. He posted respectable numbers at shortstop -- 12 home runs, 72 RBI -- but Rangers general manager Jon Daniels felt the shortstop was capable of more than a .706 OPS. While the GM mentioned having competition at shortstop during spring training, that never materialized and Andrus returns to the spot at which he's called home the last 11 years in a Rangers uniform. The 20-homer campaign of 2017 looks like an outlier, but the Rangers are looking for more potency in the bat.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Makes first spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus made his Cactus League debut Tuesday, going 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in a game against the Royals.

Andrus was the last of the Rangers' regulars to appear in a spring game. He's coming off a pair of mediocre seasons, and the 31-year-old shortstop needs to change the narrative in 2020. There isn't an in-house candidate ready to step in to replace Andrus, but the Rangers have noted his drop in production.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Not playing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus has been taking extra work in live batting practice sessions and the indoor cages, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Andrus has not yet played a spring game, but there is no injury involved. "I'll play," Andrus said. "Not now but I will get the at-bats that I need to get ready. I'm working hard in the cage on some things I want to do offensively. As soon as I get that done I will play." Texas' starting shortstop was put on notice during the offseason by general manager Jon Daniels after a down season in 2019.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Shedding weight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus showed up at a team event Friday about 10 pounds lighter than when the 2019 season ended, Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Andrus, who is entering his 12th year in the Rangers' organization, said he plans to shed at least another five pounds before training camp opens. He's coming off an unproductive season with a .706 OPS in 147 games. Texas general manager Jon Daniels made both Andrus and second baseman Rougned Odor aware of the team's displeasure with their results last year, per Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News. "We've been real clear with both guys," Daniels said. "Their position with the club is different from what it's been." The message to Andrus was to show up in better shape and be committed to the long grind of the baseball season. While there is not a ready option to take over at shortstop, Rangers manager Chris Woodward could drop Andrus in the batting order.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Won't opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is not expected to opt out of the final three years and $43 million remaining on his contract with the Rangers, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old was productive last season with the Rangers, recording a .706 OPS with 72 RBI and 31 stolen bases, though he was inconsistent at times and seemed to draw the ire of the coaching staff on occasion, to the point where he may have to earn his starting role in spring. Although he doesn't have elite power numbers, Andrus should still carry fantasy value in 2020 thanks to his speed and ability to produce runs.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Steals two bases in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run scored in the Rangers' 6-1 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Andrus capped off yet another productive season Sunday in which he had two stolen bases, one in the first and another in the third inning. The 31-year-old finished the season slashing .275/.313/.393 while hitting 12 home runs, driving in 72 runs, and stealing 31 bases.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Knocks in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 12-10 loss to Boston.

Since being put on notice that he'll face competition for his starting job next season, Andrus has hits in three straight games, going 5-for-11 with three extra-base hits and five RBI. Prior to his mini-outburst, Andrus was batting just .227 over 242 at-bats since the All-Star break, hence the Rangers making public a desire to open up the competition at shortstop next spring.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Goes yard in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 12-3 loss to the Athletics.

With the Rangers already trailing by 11 runs, Andrus finally made a response with his solo shot off Athletics starter Sean Manaea in the sixth inning. The shortstop is up to 11 homers, 28 stolen bases, 68 RBI and 74 runs scored with a .271/.308/.387 slash line in 140 games this year.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Will face competition in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Andrus will face competition for the starting shortstop job next season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Rangers would love to see Andrus grab hold of the job, but nothing will be guaranteed for the 31-year-old, who is looking at a second straight season with a sub-.700 OPS and fifth season overall below .700 with more than 600 plate appearances. Shortstops with Gold Gloves can get by with those figures, but Andrus is not an elite fielder. "I think [competition] would be healthy," Daniels said of Andrus' role as the club's starting shortstop going into 2020. "Elvis has got to perform at a higher level. He's capable of more and we need more." The Rangers can look at Danny Santana as an in-house option to challenge Andrus, who said he plans to shed weight during the offseason leading into the final year of his contract.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

He'll take a seat for the day game after going 3-for-13 with a walk, two RBI and two runs in the first three games of the series in Baltimore. With the Rangers sitting at 71-73 heading into Sunday and out of the mix for a playoff spot, it wouldn't be surprising if Andrus were rested once a week for the rest of the season.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 7-6 win over the Orioles.

Andrus entered the game with just three RBI over his past 19 games and has been a tepid hitter over the second half. The shortstop is slugging just .307 since the All-Star break.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Andrus has started the past eight games for Texas, slashing .188/.257/.313 with one home run and two stolen bases during that stretch. Danny Santana is starting at shortstop in this one, with Logan Forsythe getting the nod at first base and Isiah Kiner-Falefa manning the hot corner.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the White Sox.

Andrus got Texas on the board by crushing a 430-foot homer off Ross Detwiler in the fourth inning, but unfortunately the Rangers' bats fell silent the rest of the way. Through 116 games, Andrus has 10 home runs and leads Texas in batting average (.282), hits (134) and stolen bases (25).

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Sitting in matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels.

He is hitting .279 with one home run and three steals in 17 games this month. Andrus ranks seventh in the majors with 25 steals. Logan Forsythe will start at shortstop and hit fifth.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Breaks cold streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a 7-3 victory against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Coming into the afternoon, Andrus was on a 3-for-21 (.143) skid and had four hits in his last seven games. Reaching that total in Wednesday's game alone probably indicates Andrus is ready to emerge from his slump. He is batting .285 with nine home runs, 57 RBI, 57 runs and 25 steals in 438 at-bats this season.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Enduring rough stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

Like many of the Rangers' hitters, Andrus' bat has gone cold of late. He's 3-for-21 (.143) over the last six games and batting .208 since the All-Star break.

July 26, 2019 07:20 PM
Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Athletics.

Andrus is 0-for-8 at the dish over his last two contests, so he'll get the night off to regroup. Danny Santana will shift over to shortstop and bat third with Andrus out of the equation.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Flashes speed in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and two stolen bases in Friday's 9-8 win over the Astros.

While the two teams were busy combining for nine homers on the night, it was the shortstop's speed that proved to be the difference -- after he hit a one-out single in the bottom of the ninth, he swiped second and then scored on Danny Santana's walkoff hit. Andrus is now slashing .304/.342/.451, and with 21 stolen bases, he's topped 20 for the 10th time in his 11-year career.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Lifts eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in a 7-4 loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Andrus accounted for the only run off Michael Pineda with his home run leading off the sixth inning. Over his last 13 games, the 30-year-old is 18-for-50 with one homer and five steals. For the season, Andrus has a .307/.344/.460 slash line with 19 stolen bases.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Steals three bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-3 with a run scored and three stolen bases in Tuesday's 9-4 loss to the Angels.

Andrus had a single to right field during the third inning and subsequently stole second base, advanced to third on a wild pitch, and stole home for the third time this season. The 30-year-old is enjoying a resurgent season with a .309/.347/.456 slash line and is 19-for-23 in stolen-base attempts.
