Elvis Andrus went 0-for-6 at the plate but stole two bases and scored a run Wednesday versus the Mets.

Andrus was the only Rangers position player who didn't record a hit or a walk, but he still managed to help out fantasy owners by stealing second and third base in the second inning after reaching on a fielder's choice. It looked like he actually might have been out in his attempt to steal second, but the Mets chose not to challenge the play. Andrus has 22 steals on the season.
Aug 9 - 3:44 PM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with three doubles and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Twins.

Andrus is now up to 47 extra-base hits on the year, which gives him a new career-high. He has hit 15 homers this season, which equals his total from 2015-2016 combined. Despite some lofty competition, Andrus has been the top performing fantasy shortstop this season.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 and crunched a two-run bomb in a 5-1 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

His 15 home runs have nearly doubled his previous career high of eight longballs from last year. Combine the power with a .288 batting average, 62 runs, 59 RBI and 20 stolen bases and you have an elite fantasy shortstop.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored Friday against the Orioles.

Andrus has tailed off offensively in July, but he has three homers in his last seven games and 14 on the year. The 28-year-old established a new career-high with eight homers last year, but he should at least double that total this year.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored as the Rangers came back to beat the Rays 4-3 on Saturday.

Andrus hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to get the Rangers on the board, and he was in the middle of the three-run sixth inning that saw the Rangers take the lead. It's the second straight game in which the shortstop has homered among three hits, after collecting just two hits in his first 29 at-bats of the second half. Andrus is batting .291/.333/.466 with an already career-best 13 homers, 53 RBI, 58 runs scored and 20 steals to date.

Andrus went 3-for-5 on the night, including a solo homer in the first inning. He entered Friday’s action in a miserable 2-for-33 slide, so hopefully this will get him going again.

Rangers activated SS Elvis Andrus from the paternity leave list.

He's back after a two-game absence. Andrus will return to his usual post at shortstop while batting second Saturday against Angels right-hander Jesse Chavez. The 28-year-old has had a career year, hitting .301 with 11 HR, 50 RBI and 20 steals, though somehow that wasn't enough to make the AL All-Star team.

For the season as a whole, the shortstop is slashing .302/.350/.475 with 11 homers, 50 RBI and 50 runs scored over the course of 324 at-bats.

The 28-year-old has had a career year, batting a robust .301 with 49 RBI and 20 steals. Andrus should be headed to Miami for his third All-Star appearance later this month.

He has a .301 batting average with 46 RBI, 47 runs scored and 18 stolen bases and has made himself into a fantasy force to be reckoned with for the first time in his nine-year career.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer, a solo homer, three runs scored and four RBI in Monday's 15-9 loss to the Indians.

The Rangers were already leading 4-1 when Andrus launched a three-run homer off Carlos Carrasco in the second inning. He would go on to smack a solo shot in the fourth inning to boost the lead to 9-2, a lead which the Rangers somehow managed to blow over the next few innings. The home runs continued what has been a superb overall campaign for the 28-year-old shortstop, who is hitting to a .299/.348/.463 triple-slash with nine homers, 45 RBI, 46 runs scored and 18 stolen bases in 298 at-bats. The nine homers are a career high.
