Elvis Andrus connected for his fourth home run of the season but the Rangers fell to the Twins on Saturday.

He finished 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. The home run is a rare treat for his owners. Each of Andrus' .293/.348/.418 line stats are career highs. His best category has always been stolen bases. He has 13 of those this year.

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday.

It's a routine day off. Jurickson Profar will handle shortstop while Andrus rests.
Jun 30 - 10:46 AM

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Cardinals.

Nothing wrong with Andrus, just a regular day of rest and a way to get the hot-hitting Jurickson Profar into the lineup. Profar will bat seventh against Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals on Saturday.
Jun 18 - 1:19 PM

Elvis Andrus hit a home run and a double, scored three times, plated three RBI, drew a walk and stole a base on Saturday versus the Mariners.

After three poor years in a row, Andrus is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence. Home runs are rare for the Rangers' shortstop, this one being only his second of 2016. He is now up to seven stolen bags to go with his .298/.345/.414 slash line. He is unlikely to match his career high of 42 steals but if he can combine his usual 25+ steals with a batting average close to .300 he can be a real asset for his fantasy owners.
Jun 5 - 1:21 AM

Elvis Andrus is absent from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for Andrus. Hanser Alberto will handle shortstop.
May 29 - 11:57 AM

Elvis Andrus went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Astros.

In a game that saw three combined runs score between the two teams, Andrus drew first blood in striking for a solo home run against Astros starter Mike Fiers in the second inning. The tater was his first of the season. In addition to the solitary dinger, Andrus holds a .290/.338/.406 triple-slash with four steals, three triples, seven doubles and 16 runs scored across 138 at-bats.
May 21 - 10:13 PM

Elvis Andrus was suspended one game for his actions in Sunday's brawl with the Blue Jays.

Andrus could clearly be seen throwing a punch at Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar, so he got off pretty light here. Rougned Odor received an eight-game suspension for connecting with a shot to the face of Jose Bautista. No other Rangers will face suspension, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
May 17 - 3:59 PM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Yankees.

Andrus had an RBI single in the Rangers' five-run third inning. He had another single and a double in the game. The shortstop doesn't have a home run or a stolen base to date, but he's hitting .343/.370/.463 with 12 RBI and eight runs scored through 19 games.
Apr 26 - 10:33 PM

Elvis Andrus is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners.

Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Mariners right-hander Taijuan Walker. Andrus is 10-for-28 (.357) to open the season, but he's been caught on all three of his stolen base attempts.
Apr 13 - 1:06 PM

Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Mariners.

Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and bat ninth against Mariners left-hander Wade Miley. Andrus is 2-for-6 with an RBI, a walk, and a run scored to open the year.
Apr 6 - 11:21 AM

Elvis Andrus will bat eighth Wednesday in the Rangers' Cactus League opener.

Other than Ian Desmond and Adrian Beltre, the lineup features what is expected to be the Rangers' regulars, so it figures to lead to natural speculation that this is where Andrus could be when the regular season begins. The 27-year-old was once a staple near the top of the Rangers' lineup, but he spent most of last year batting either sixth or seventh. Pushing him further down in the lineup won't do anything to help his appeal in fantasy leagues.
Mar 2 - 9:22 AM

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.

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.
