Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Rangers are not likely to trade SS Elvis Andrus.
Rosenthal noted that while the Rangers would be willing to trade "any shortstop" in the right deal, the team believes that Andrus is going to have a big year and would be somewhat reticent to move him. Beyond Andrus, the Rangers have Jurickson Profar and Louis Sardinia to dangle if something catches their eye. Nov 23 - 3:11 PM

Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York reports that it's "very doubtful" that the Yankees will acquire Elvis Andrus from the Rangers.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week that the Yankees were "intrigued" by Andrus, but his production has dropped off in recent years and he's owed $120 million over the next eight seasons. Banking on a rebound would be a big risk, even for a deep-pocketed team like the Yankees, so it's not surprising that they could ultimately find their shortstop elsewhere.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees are "intrigued" by Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus.

Andrus' eight-year, $120 million contract extension kicks in next season and he posted a miserable .263/.314/.333 slash line across 157 games in 2014, but the Yankees are desperate for a shortstop and may be viewing the 26-year-old Venezuelan as a potential bounceback candidate. Sherman says the Rangers -- if they're able to unload Andrus -- can go "inexpensive in the middle infield with a combination of Rougned Odor, Jurickson Profar, and Luis Sardinas."

Elvis Andrus told the Dallas Morning News at manager Jeff Banister's introductory press conference on Friday that he's lost 10 pounds since the end of the season.

Andrus added that he plans to drop an additional 10 pounds. It was a disappointing 2014 campaign for the shortstop, as he batted just .263/.314/.333 with two homers, 41 RBI and 27 steals. Apparently the 26-year-old believes that shedding some weight will help him rebound in 2015. The first year of Andrus' eight-year, $118 million extension kicks in next season.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 in Sunday's season finale against the Athletics.

Andrus finished the year on a bit of a high note, collecting two of the Rangers' six hits against A's starter Sonny Gray. Andrus had a down year by his standards, in part due to his surroundings on an injury-riddled Rangers club. The 26-year-old finishes hitting .263 with 27 steals and 72 runs scored.
Sep 28 - 6:24 PM

Elvis Andrus went 0-for-4 in a losing effort against the Athletics on Friday.

It has been a very tough season at the plate for the young shortstop, hitting just .260/.312/.331 with two homers, 41 RBI and 26 stolen bases. He has also been caught stealing a league-leading 14 times.
Sep 26 - 11:22 PM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 in a losing effort against the Mariners on Thursday.

Andrus was one of scant bright spots from the Rangers' offense, logging his first three-hit game since July 29. The shortstop has had another mediocre season at the plate, slashing .268/.320/.339, but he has stolen 25 bases and played solid defense.
Sep 4 - 11:16 PM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday's 12-2 shellacking by the Indians.

Andrus' RBI single in the ninth off of Carlos Carrasco amounted to the equivalent of a sad emoticon at the end of a forgettable game for the road team. The base knock gave Andrus 29 RBI on the season. He's slashing a disappointing .270/.319/.345 in what's turned into a lost year for the Rangers.
Aug 2 - 12:18 AM

Elvis Andrus finished 3-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Andrus had three of the Rangers' 15 hits on the night. The stolen base was his 21st of the year, fourth-best in the American League. He's hit safely in six straight games, raising his season line to .268/.316/.342. It's been a down year by Andrus' standards, but perhaps his recent success is a sign of better things to come from here out.
Jul 30 - 12:23 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored Friday against the Athletics.

Andrus entered Friday's action with a lousy .232/.259/.293 batting line this month. The 25-year-old has salvaged some of his value with 20 stolen bases and 51 runs scored, but he remains a major disappointment in fantasy leagues. Of course, a poor supporting cast hasn't helped his cause.
Jul 25 - 11:37 PM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-5 with a three-run double Monday versus the Astros.

Andrus has 21 doubles this year -- four more than he had in 156 games last season -- but he's driven in just 22 runs for the disappointing Rangers offense. Obviously, it'd be nice if he'd show some improvement as a hitter, but what's really hurt his fantasy value this year is that there just isn't a lot of talent around him.
Jul 8 - 12:34 AM

Elvis Andrus singled twice and doubled in four at-bats in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Andrus notched his first multi-hit game since June 22. The Rangers couldn't bring him home despite reaching base three times. Andrus sports a paltry .267/.317/.343 slash line with 18 stolen bases.
Jul 3 - 11:36 PM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers are exploring the trade value of their "core-type" players.

The Rangers haven't decided yet whether they'll be buyers or sellers even though they're 11.5 games behind the A's in the AL West. However, they're apparently at the very least putting feelers out to assess the trade value of some of their players. Though he didn't say which specific players could be on the block, Grant lists Elvis Andrus, Alex Rios, Joakim Soria, Adrian Beltre and even Yu Darvish as those that fit the "core-type" label.
Jun 25 - 11:23 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a walk and two steals Friday against the Angels.

Andrus loves running against the Angels; he's 35-for-38 in 97 career games against the team, giving him a 92 percent success rate. Versus everyone else, he's 148-for-206 in 732 games, putting him at 72 percent.
Jun 21 - 2:00 AM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Andrus got on base ahead of Shin-Soo Choo, who scored him twice on a third-inning double and a fifth-inning single. Overall, though, Andrus has been mediocre at the plate, slashing .260/.310/.346 with 14 stolen bases.
