Elvis Andrus went 2-for-3 with a triple and a run scored in a loss to the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

Andrus had half of the Rangers’ hits on the day. They were being shut out going into the bottom of the ninth inning, but Andrus led off with a triple to deep center field before being brought home on a Shin-Soo Choo ground out.

Elvis Andrus clobbered a pair of home runs Saturday in the Rangers' win over the Athletics.

He tied a career-high with four RBI. Andrus was the only offense the Rangers needed in a 5-0 win. Both of his blasts came off A's rookie Raul Alcantara. The 28-year-old is having his best offensive season. His .299 average, eight homers and 68 RBI all represent new career-highs. Saturday was the first multi-homer game of Andrus' career.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and scored the winning run in a walk-off victory Monday versus the Angels.

He took Cory Rasmus deep with two outs in the seventh inning to tie things up and then scampered home on a bloop single by Ian Desmond in the bottom of the ninth. Andrus' six home runs are one shy of his career high, and he's at career-bests across the board with his .298/.358/.426 triple-slash numbers.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI triple and a stolen base in Tuesday's come-from-behind win over the Astros.

Andrus played a big part in the comeback win, plating a run with a triple off closer Ken Giles in the ninth inning to tie the game and coming around to score the winning run just one batter later. A quietly productive player in recent years, the 28-year-old is hitting .293/.352/.416 with five homers, 62 RBI, 64 runs scored and 22 steals through 133 games with the Rangers this year.
Sep 13 - 11:15 PM

Elvis Andrus put forth a strong performance in Tuesday's 10-7 win over the Mariners, finishing 4-for-6 with a solo home run, three doubles and three runs scored.

Andrus' home run in the seventh inning was an absolute no-doubter. The dinger was his fifth of the season. He would go on to pick up an RBI double just one inning later. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 28-year-old shortstop is slashing .298/.356/.419 with 60 RBI, 62 runs scored and 21 steals over 439 at-bats.

Elvis Andrus connected for his fourth home run of the season but the Rangers fell to the Twins on Saturday.

He finished 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. The home run is a rare treat for his owners. Each of Andrus' .293/.348/.418 line stats are career highs. His best category has always been stolen bases. He has 13 of those this year.

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday.

It's a routine day off. Jurickson Profar will handle shortstop while Andrus rests.
Jun 30 - 10:46 AM

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Cardinals.

Nothing wrong with Andrus, just a regular day of rest and a way to get the hot-hitting Jurickson Profar into the lineup. Profar will bat seventh against Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals on Saturday.
Jun 18 - 1:19 PM

Elvis Andrus hit a home run and a double, scored three times, plated three RBI, drew a walk and stole a base on Saturday versus the Mariners.

After three poor years in a row, Andrus is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence. Home runs are rare for the Rangers' shortstop, this one being only his second of 2016. He is now up to seven stolen bags to go with his .298/.345/.414 slash line. He is unlikely to match his career high of 42 steals but if he can combine his usual 25+ steals with a batting average close to .300 he can be a real asset for his fantasy owners.
Jun 5 - 1:21 AM

Elvis Andrus is absent from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

May 29 - 11:57 AM

In a game that saw three combined runs score between the two teams, Andrus drew first blood in striking for a solo home run against Astros starter Mike Fiers in the second inning. The tater was his first of the season. In addition to the solitary dinger, Andrus holds a .290/.338/.406 triple-slash with four steals, three triples, seven doubles and 16 runs scored across 138 at-bats.
May 21 - 10:13 PM

Elvis Andrus was suspended one game for his actions in Sunday's brawl with the Blue Jays.

Andrus could clearly be seen throwing a punch at Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar, so he got off pretty light here. Rougned Odor received an eight-game suspension for connecting with a shot to the face of Jose Bautista. No other Rangers will face suspension, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
