He has a .297 batting average with seven home runs, 31 runs, 29 RBI and twelve stolen bases in 53 games.

Andrus is already up to seven home runs on the season and has eight hits over his last three contests. He set a career high in longballs last season with eight.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, and two runs scored Sunday in the Rangers' 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

The stolen base was his 10th of the season and he's sporting a decent .278/.321/.434 batting line with 27 runs scored in 50 games this season for the Rangers. Andrus batted second on Sunday for the 24th time in 2017. It has become his regular lineup spot.

May 26 - 10:51 PM

Elvis Andrus hit his sixth home run of the year in a loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

The solo shot was Andrus' only hit in four at-bats, as the Rangers struggled mightily against Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz. The shortstop set a career high with eight homers in 2016, but he's already got six this year roughly one-third of the way through. The steadily consistent 28-year-old also has seven steals and a .270/.313/.427 line in 47 games to date.
May 26 - 12:20 AM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and an infield RBI single in Sunday's win over the A's.

Andrus legged out an RBI infield single in the first inning, but it was his seventh-inning RBI double which proved to be a game-shifter. That double off Kendall Graveman knotted the score at 4-4. Nomar Mazara would follow with an RBI single to score Andrus and jump the Rangers to a 5-4 advantage. They would go on to win by a final score of 6-4. The 28-year-old shortstop owns a smooth .289/.333/.456 triple-slash with five homers, 18 RBI and seven steals across 149 at-bats.
May 14 - 6:10 PM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with three RBI, a run scored and a stolen base as the Rangers squeaked by the Athletics 6-5 on Saturday.

Andrus opened the scoring with an RBI single in the third inning, and his two-run single in the seventh tied the score and set the stage for the Rangers to take the lead one batter later. The stolen base with the seventh for Andrus this year. The 28-year-old is having another quietly productive year on offense, batting .276/.323/.441 with a surprising five homers, 16 RBI and 18 runs scored.
May 14 - 12:28 AM

Elvis Andrus delivered a game-winning, walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead the Rangers past the Royals 2-1 on Saturday.

Andrus was hitless in three at-bats in the game before coming to the dish in the ninth -- in fact, he was hitless in his last 12 at-bats overall -- against Peter Moylan. The shortstop pulled a breaking ball down the left field line for what was scored as a single but would have been an extra-base hit had Rougned Odor not raced around to score the winning run. Andrus began the year hot but has cooled in recent days, batting .275/.296/.493 in 17 games overall.
Apr 23 - 12:34 AM

Elvis Andrus went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

The Rangers offense was unable to garner traction of any sort against Jesse Hahn and the A's pen on Wednesday, finishing out with just three hits as a team. Even after taking the 0-for-4, Andrus is still hitting a shiny .300/.323/.550 triple-slash with three homers, four RBI, nine runs scored and four steals over the course of an even 60 at-bats.
Apr 19 - 6:48 PM

Elvis Andrus had a couple singles, an RBI and a run scored on Tuesday in Oakland.

He also added his third and fourth stolen bases of the season, swiping second and third in the sixth inning. Unfortunately for the Rangers, Andrus had two of their three hits and the club didn't draw a walk, as they were shut down by Andrew Triggs and the A's bullpen. Andrus is hitting .321/.345/.589 so far this season.
Apr 19 - 1:02 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 and hit his third homer Wednesday in the Rangers' 8-3 win over the Angels.

Andrus already has more homers this year than he hit in 157 games in 2014, and he's more than a third of the way to surpassing his career high of eight from last year. The power spike is surely something of a fluke, but we're not sure why the Rangers wouldn't bat him second until he cools off. He was in that spot Tuesday, when he homered and doubled, but he was back batting seventh tonight.
Apr 13 - 1:34 AM

Elvis Andrus homered and doubled Tuesday against the Angels.

The Rangers' original plan was to bat Carlos Gomez first and Shin-Soo Choo second this year, and if that was going to change, it seemed that it would be to accommodate Delino DeShields Jr. in the leadoff spot after his big spring. Andrus, though, has been one of the team's hottest hitters thus far, and he's been rewarded with starts in the two hole the last two games. It'll give his fantasy value a boost for however long it sticks.
Apr 12 - 2:11 AM

Elvis Andrus connected for a two-run homer in the Rangers’ 4-3 win over the Padres on Friday.

It was his first homer of the spring and ended up being the difference in the ballgame. While it didn’t get a lot of attention, Andrus had the best season of his career with the bat last year while batting .302/.362/.439 with eight homers, 69 RBI, and 24 steals over 147 games. The infusion of youth at the shortstop position has pushed him down the board, but he’s still useful to have around in fantasy leagues.

Elvis Andrus (hernia) will make his Cactus League debut on Saturday.

Andrus is batting second for the Rangers in a split-squad game and is starting at shortstop. He underwent surgery in November for a sports hernia, but is expected to be fully healthy and ready to go in time for Opening Day.
