Elvis Andrus SS TEX 2 Days

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.

Elvis Andrus went 4-for-5 with a double and scored three times Friday in his return to the second spot in the Texas lineup.

It's safe to say he'll remain in that spot for the foreseeable future. It's where Ron Washington has wanted him all along, but with Andrus and the entire offense struggling, the decision was made to drop him for a few days. The multihit game tonight was Andrus' first since April 15.
