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. Jun 24 - 11:10 PM

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting some rest. Hanser Alberto is taking Andrus' spot at shortstop.
Jun 21 - 11:10 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.
Jun 12 - 11:47 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.
Jun 11 - 6:17 PM

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.
Jun 5 - 11:35 PM

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.
May 27 - 12:06 AM

Elvis Andrus had a rare big day at the plate Monday, doubling in two runs and smacking a solo home run in a win over the Indians.

Andrus wasn't the only one in this one who was sprinting to the bat rack, as Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre also homered as part of a 10-run, nine-hit outburst by the Rangers. The shortstop's slash line still sits at a sickly .236/.293/.309, but he does have three multi-hit games his last four times out.
May 25 - 8:15 PM

Elvis Andrus made a fielding error in the sixth inning of Friday's loss to the Rays.

Andrus has been a mess defensively this season. His fielding error on a Kevin Kiermaier grounder in the sixth inning opened the door for the Rays, who paraded through to the tune of four runs in the frame. Andrus' .231/.289/.299 slash isn't too hot, either. He did finish the game 1-for-4 with a single. So there's that.
May 8 - 11:39 PM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a stolen base against the Astros on Tuesday.

Andrus singled and scored in both the first and third innings. The steal was his fourth of the season. Andrus had a slow start but has steadily improved his average; counting Tuesday, Andrus has hit safely in 12 of his last 14 games. That amounts to a .240/.298/.317 line overall.
May 5 - 11:08 PM

Elvis Andrus finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base Saturday against the Angels.

Andrus has reached base in five straight, a major accomplishment for a Rangers hitter this year. Unfortunately, he's still batting just .208 overall. Worse, he's drawn one walk in 73 at-bats, an unusual problem for the light-hitting shortstop; if nothing else, he's usually managed a decent walk rate for a guy with so little power.
Apr 26 - 12:46 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a solo home run in Tuesday's win against the Angels.

Andrus swatted a solo homer in the sixth inning against Jose Ramirez. Home runs should continue to be a rare occurrence for Andrus, as he now has only 21 in his career over 4,014 plate appearances. The steals, however, should continue to come in at a high frequency.
Apr 15 - 12:05 AM

Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Andrus knocked in both runs via a fifth inning RBI single off of Roberto Hernandez. Owners of Andrus should be happy to see the run production because at this point there's not much else to cling to with on the shortstop beyond speed. He's off to a rocky 5-for-24 start on the season and is coming off a .263/.314/.333 campaign in 2014. Andrus did put up good numbers in the spring, for whatever that's worth.
Apr 11 - 11:58 PM

Elvis Andrus is batting seventh for the Rangers on Thursday afternoon against the A's.

It's about time the Rangers moved him away from the top of the lineup. Andrus batted just .263/.314/.333 in 157 games last season and he's 2-for-11 this year.
Apr 9 - 12:56 PM

Elvis Andrus (back) is set to resume baseball activities on Wednesday.

Said Andrus, "There's nothing to worry about." He was scratched from the lineup on Monday with a stiff lower back, but it doesn't sound major. The shortstop has been raking this spring, slashing .389/.410/.639 in 39 plate appearances.
Mar 31 - 12:18 PM

Elvis Andrus was scratched from the Rangers' Cactus League lineup Monday with a stiff lower back.

It doesn't sound like something that will affect his status for the start of the season. Andrus is batting .389/.410/.639 in 39 plate appearances this spring.
