Andrus went 3-for-4 with a steal and two runs in Wednesday's win over Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

He'd been scuffling over the last few games, going just 1-for-13, but as he has all year, Andrus was able to pull out of his tailspin rapidly and avoid a lengthy slump. That's why he's hitting .293, which would be a career high if the season ended today. He doesn't have the high-end speed that he once did and has never been one to pile up RBI and runs, but Andrus has still rounded out his fantasy line with 16 steals and remains a solid shortstop option for those not lucky enough to own the luminaries at the position.

Andrus said Monday he has been hobbled with a minor groin strain since May, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

There hasn't been a change in Andrus' amount of playing time during the season and with just a slightly lower steals mark than last year, not to mention career highs in batting average (.290) and slugging (.407), this injury doesn't seem to be affecting his fantasy value.

Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Rangers manager Jeff Banister has been making a habit lately of resting Andrus on Sundays, allowing utility man Jurickson Profar to take a turn at shortstop. Andrus went 0-for-7 in the first two games of the series with the Tigers, but is hitting .275 with eight RBI, six runs and two steals since the All-Star break.

Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus will rest for the second straight Sunday matinee, as Rangers manager Jeff Banister looks for ways to get utility man Jurickson Profar in the lineup. Profar's presence could continue to cost Andrus one or two starts a week, but that's probably not significant enough to dim Andrus' outlook much outside of shallower leagues.

Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The off day isn't out of the ordinary for Andrus, who will rest for the third time since the All-Star break. He's gotten off to a lukewarm start to the second half, producing a .262/.340/.333 batting line to go along with no steals and just three runs and RBI. Jurickson Profar will cover shortstop with Andrus sitting out.

Andrus went 1-for-3 with an RBI infield single in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop broke open the scoring with a second-inning infield single that plated Ryan Rua, which would turn out to be the only run the Rangers managed on the afternoon. Andrus has now hit safely in five of six games, and is slashing .333/.378/.564 line over 39 at-bats in July.

Andrus finished 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI, two runs and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The shortstop got things started for the Texas offense by doubling in a run and scoring on Mitch Moreland's homer in the fourth inning, and he helped put the game out of reach with another RBI and a run in the sixth. Andrus is now batting .282 on the season, putting him on track to rival his career-high .287 mark set back in 2012.

Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

With a pair of 0-for-4 outings over the first two games of the series, Andrus will get a breather in Sunday's matinee. In Andrus' stead, Hanser Alberto will pick up a start at shortstop and bat ninth in the order.
