Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double, homer and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-3 win against the A's.
In Andrus' current five-game hitting streak, he's recorded four extra-base hits. It always seems that Andrus is worse than the sum of his parts, but good bat control hasn't led to good offensive numbers and quick feet have not led to steals. He's not the dynasty asset that he should be. Thu, Sep 24, 2015 01:11:00 AM

Elvis Andrus went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a straight steal of home in Tuesday's win against the Padres.

Andrus knocked in three runs with a seventh-inning single, though one of the runs came in after the ball was kicked out of the glove of catcher Derek Norris. With new catcher Austin Hedges behind the plate, Andrus stole home off of reliever Kevin Quackenbush. The shortstop has multiple hits in three straight games and is now batting .262/.307/.357 with 50 RBI and 56 runs scored.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday afternoon's win over the Blue Jays.

The double was Andrus' 24th of the season. While he's hitting just .259/.305/.353 with six homers, 47 RBI and 53 runs scored, the numbers are much nicer since the All-Star Break. Entering Thursday's contest, he was slashing .291/.311/.411 in the 37 games that the Rangers had played following the Midsummer Classic.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

The homer was the fifth of the year for Andrus. After a slow first half, Andrus is hitting .309 with two homers, 12 RBI and 15 runs scored since the All-Star break. The shortstop is batting .257/.306/.346 in total.

Elvis Andrus was 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Giants on Friday.

Andrus doubled and scored in the first inning before taking Madison Bumgarner deep in the second. He's now up to four home runs and 38 RBI on the year. The 26-year-old has shown some long-awaited signs of life recently, hitting .350 (21-for-60) over his last 15 games.

Elvis Andrus hit a go-ahead two-run single in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Andrus came through with the big single after Prince Fielder was intentionally walked to load the bases with one out in the ninth inning. The single was his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-4, though he also managed a sacrifice fly in the first inning of an offensive battle that seemed like it might never end. Andrus once looked like a budding star, but the shine has faded in the last few seasons and he's yet to achieve a slugging mark of higher than .378 in his career. It won't be happening this season, either, as he's currently slashing just .246/.299/.324 with three homers, 33 RBI, 33 runs scored and 10 steals.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Andrus had a couple of singles, scoring in the second and fifth innings as the Rangers ran it up on the Rox. It's largely been another disappointing year for the 26-year-old, who can't seem to recreate the success he enjoyed just a few seasons ago. Andrus is hitting .246/.301/.325 after Tuesday's game.

Elvis Andrus went hitless in a fourth straight game Saturday, dropping his average to .237.

Andrus seemed to be heating up last week, but it proved to be a mirage. It'd be one thing if he were still the excellent defensive shortstop he was a couple of years ago, but since he's not, he's a definite problem for the Rangers right now.
Sun, Jul 5, 2015 01:15:00 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 on Wednesday, giving him five hits, including three doubles, the last two days.

Andrus is still batting just .246. His average should go up a bit more, but since he's not running like he used to (eight steals in 12 attempts) and he's no longer hitting second, he wouldn't seem to have much to offer fantasy leaguers.

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting some rest. Hanser Alberto is taking Andrus' spot at shortstop.
Sun, Jun 21, 2015 11:10:00 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a home run and a career-high four RBI in Friday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

Andrus showed some rare power in the seventh with a two-run homer and added a two-run single one inning later. It was a big night for the 26-year-old, but those have been few and far between this season. He's batting just .239/.302/.326 through 60 games.
Fri, Jun 12, 2015 11:47:00 PM

Elvis Andrus collected the Rangers lone hit on Thursday as they were shutout by Scott Kazmir and the Athletics.

Andrus finished 1-for-3 on the day and was one of just three Rangers to reach base safely. He has continued to struggle hitting near the bottom of the Rangers lineup, slashing just .235/.299/.310 with two homers and 20 RBI on the year.

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-3 with a run scored, a walk, and two stolen bases Friday against the Royals.

For what it's worth, Andrus is now hitting .302 (19-for-63) out of the sixth spot in the order this season. He was hitting just .200 out of the No. 2 spot. The 26-year-old is now up to eight steals on the year. He was just 6-for-10 in steal attempts coming into Friday's game.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Andrus had a double among his three hits. The shortstop has multiple hits in four of his last five games, raising his average to .247. With the steal, he's now 6-of-10 on the year.
