Elvis Andrus SS TEX 6 Days

Andrus went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

The 2014 campaign has been a disappointing one for Andrus, and a good share of the decline in production is connected to the various injuries that have depleted the Texas lineup. Still, he's just 21-for-33 on the basepaths, and his OBP appears to be settling in to the .320-.330 range, rather than the .340-plus marks he carried from 2010-12.

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.

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 asses 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 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.
