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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Orioles.

It's just a routine day of rest for Andrus. Luis Sardinas is starting at shortstop versus Baltimore.

Elvis Andrus was ejected in the sixth inning of Wednesday's game against the Twins for arguing balls and strikes.

Andrus thought he'd walked, but home plate umpire Pat Hoberg saw it differently. After Andrus grounded out on the next pitch, he said something to Hoberg on his way back to the dugout, which Hoberg took exception to. Andrus was 0-for-3 in the game, but it's not as though he's frustrated at the dish -- he was 8-for-20 in the four games prior to Wednesday's ejection.
May 28 - 10:07 PM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-5 with a stolen base, a run scored, and two RBI in Monday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

Andrus lined out to right in his first at-bat and grounded out to third base in his second at-bat, but he then rattled off a two-run double and two singles to help the Rangers win big for a third straight game. The speedy shortstop is batting just .260/.318/.355 on the season, but he boasts 13 steals and 32 runs scored.
May 26 - 5:14 PM

Elvis Andrus went 4-for-5 with a double and scored three times Friday in his return to the second spot in the Texas lineup.

It's safe to say he'll remain in that spot for the foreseeable future. It's where Ron Washington has wanted him all along, but with Andrus and the entire offense struggling, the decision was made to drop him for a few days. The multihit game tonight was Andrus' first since April 15.
May 9 - 11:43 PM

Elvis Andrus has been moved to the No. 9 spot in the Rangers' batting order.

Normally the No. 2 hitter, Andrus has gone hitless in his last 21 at-bats to drop his season line to an ugly .217/.283/.287. He's also just 1-for-23 with runners in scoring position this year. Daniel Robertson is hitting second Sunday in what is his first career start, but Leonys Martin is a good bet to see most of the time in the No. 2 spot while Andrus figures things out.
May 4 - 12:38 PM

Elvis Andrus went 0-for-4 on Monday and is in a 1-for-18 slump over the last five games.

On the plus side, he was walked five times in the five games. Though 26 games, Andrus is striking out a bit less than usual and also hitting for a bit more power than he did last year, so we're not concerned that his average has temporarily dipped to .242.
