Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Surge continues in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and another two-bagger in a win over the Angels on Tuesday.

The veteran has seemingly regained his confidence at the plate after a season-plus of considerable struggles, with Tuesday's multi-hit effort extending his on-base streak to nine games and pushing his June slash line to an impressive .304/.373/.457 across 13 games. Andrus has laced seven doubles during that stretch alone, but he remains without a home run through 231 plate appearances on the season.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Walks it off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a game-winning RBI single and a double in a victory over the Royals on Friday.

Andrus' ninth-inning single narrowly plated Matt Chapman to snap a 3-3 tie, allowing the veteran shortstop to atone for a pair of earlier gaffes on defense that led to a Royals run in the eighth inning. Andrus' .213/.266/.274 season slash line naturally has plenty of room for improvement, but he's been markedly better thus far in June with a .276 average (8-for-29), four doubles, two RBI, five walks, a stolen base and four runs across nine games.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Stays hot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in a loss to the Rockies on Sunday.

The veteran shortstop mustered the only multi-hit effort on a difficult afternoon for the Athletics offense. Andrus' season slash line is up to .214/.259/.273, unsightly numbers that nevertheless qualify as his highest in all three categories since Opening Day.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Key contributions in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Andrus not only kept his torrid stretch at the plate going with his fourth multi-hit effort in the last nine games, but he also was credited by none other than Mariners manager Scott Servais for wearing out his starter Chris Flexen with an epic 13-pitch at-bat that ultimately culminated in the veteran shortstop's second two-bagger in as many nights. The 32-year-old is hitting .438 over the 29 plate appearances he's logged during the aforementioned hot streak, boosting his season slash line from .174/.219/.221 to .211/.259/.269 in the process.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: On base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks and two runs in a win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Andrus' long-awaited renaissance at the plate continued in the big win for Oakland, as the veteran shortstop reached safely for the sixth time in the last seven starts. Andrus boasts an outstanding .409/.480/.500 slash line over that stretch, although he remains without a home run through 185 plate appearances.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Sits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Seattle.

Andrus went hitless over four at-bats in the final two games of the Athletics' series with the Angels, but he started to catch fire at the plate prior to that, going 8-for-15 over a four-game stretch. The 32-year-old's standing atop the depth chart at shortstop appears secure for the time being, but Chad Pinder will spell him at the position Monday.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Heater continues Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 2-for-3 with a run in a win over the Angels on Friday. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt.

Andrus' third multi-hit effort in his last four games pushed his average over the Mendoza Line for the first time since Opening Day. The veteran shortstop has essentially been struggling with the bat since the beginning of last season, but perhaps his current 8-for-15 stretch at the plate will finally serve as a long-awaited launchpad back to his career norms.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Breaks 0-for-11 slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 3-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners.

Andrus slapped his first hits since May 20 and accounted for three of Oakland's eight hits on the game but was stranded on each occasion. The encouraging effort raised his average from an anemic .174 to a still-lackluster .190 with seven extra-base hits and three steals on the season.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Benched Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Andrus started each of the past four games at shortstop, with a 2-for-15 showing over that stretch dropping his season average to .178. The 32-year-old has been one of the majors' least-productive regulars in 2021, and it won't be surprising if he soon loses hold of his everyday role in the middle infield to Chad Pinder, who enters Sunday's game with a .902 OPS.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Laces rare triple in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-4 with a triple in a loss to the Rays on Sunday.

Andrus' first three-bagger since 2019 served to extend his modest hitting streak to three games and qualified as his second extra-base hit in as many contests. Despite the occasional flashes at the plate, the veteran's season-plus slump continues in full force, as he's still slashing just .158/.203/.211 and sports a career-high 18.7 percent strikeout rate over 123 plate appearances.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus isn't starting Saturday's game against the Rays.

Andrus has gone 1-for-11 with two strikeouts in his last three games. Vimael Machin will start at shortstop and bat ninth.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 32-year-old will head to the bench Tuesday while mired in a 3-for-26 slump over his past eight appearances. Vimael Machin receives the start at shortstop and will bat ninth while Andrus receives a day off to reset.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Resting for first time in 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

Vimael Machin checks in at shortstop for Andrus, who heads to the bench for the first time this season. Though he showed some improvement at the plate during the Athletics' recent 13-game winning streak, Andrus is still sitting on a career-worst .152/.207/.190 slash line through 87 plate appearances.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Flashes wheels against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-2 with a walk, two steals and a run scored in a 7-0 win during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins.

These were the first two steals of the season for the 32-year-old, who then went 0-for-2 in the nightcap. Andrus has had a rough start to his first campaign in Oakland, slashing .136/.185/.186 through 18 games with only three RBI and three runs.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Bigger on-base presence recently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus, who went 1-for-3 with an RBI sacrifice fly, a double, a walk and a run in a win over the Tigers on Thursday, has hit safely in five of his last six games.

The veteran shortstop is still slashing an abysmal .133/.180/.200 across 50 plate appearances, so there's massive room for improvement at the plate. Nevertheless, Andrus has at least begun to emerge from a season-opening 1-for-24 slump that encompassed his first seven games, and he continues to see regular playing time as manager Bob Melvin exercises considerable patience with the 32-year-old.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Playing regularly amid struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus will start at shortstop and bat eighth Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Andrus has picked up starts in all seven of the Athletics' games, but he has yet to take advantage of the steady playing time. He's one of several hitters struggling at the moment for the 0-6 Athletics, as Andrus has recorded just one hit through his first 21 at-bats.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Signs of life at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus is 5-for-14 with a double, a triple, three RBI, a walk and four runs over his last four spring starts.

Andrus' 2-for-4 day against the Dodgers on Friday pushed his spring average over the Mendoza Line to .205 and was only his second multi-hit effort in 14 Cactus League contests. The recent flashes with the bat are particularly welcome in Andrus' case, as he's being counted on as the everyday shortstop and is coming off a 2020 season in which he slashed an unsightly .194/.252/.330 with the Rangers (111 plate appearances).

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Breaks ice with two-bagger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus went 1-for-3 with a double in a Cactus League loss to the Angels on Friday, his first hit in three spring games.

The veteran infielder also stranded five men overall, but he at least got on the board with his first official hit in an Athletics uniform. Andrus does have an extensive big-league track record as a solid offensive contributor, but he has some questions to answer at the plate after generating a career-worst .194 average and .252 on-base percentage across 111 plate appearances with the Rangers in an injury-marred 2020. Oakland is counting on Andrus to enjoy a resurgent season with the bat while serving as the departed Marcus Semien's replacement at shortstop.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Traded to Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andrus was traded from the Rangers to the Athletics on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Athletics also received catcher Aramis Garcia and cash considerations from the Rangers while Texas picked up Khris Davis, catcher Jonah Heim and minor league right-handed pitcher Dane Acker in the deal.

Andrus was rumored to be an option at third base for Texas in 2021, but he'll instead be dealt to Oakland. While he won't take over for Matt Chapman at the hot corner for the Athletics, he should return to his natural shortstop role during his first season with the team. The 32-year-old dealt with back issues during the abbreviated 2020 season and posted a career-worst .582 OPS with three home runs, seven RBI and three stolen bases over 32 games.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: In competition for 3B
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texas general manager Chris Young told MLB Network Radio that he expects Andrus to potentially become the starter at third base, Kennedi Landry of the Rangers' official site reports.

The Rangers' infield will take on a new look in 2021. The keystone combination of Andrus and Rougned Odor are expected to start the season as utility infielders. Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who won a Gold Glove at third base in 2020, is moving one spot left to start at shortstop, leaving a competition at the hot corner. Enter Andrus, Texas' starting shortstop for the last 12 seasons, who struggled with a lower-back strain in 2020, appearing in 29 games in the shortened season and hitting .194/.252/.330. Nick Solak could challenge Andrus at third base, but he could also be the replacement for Odor. Prospects Josh Jung and Sherten Apostel are also in the mix at third.
