Andrus went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus was one of six Rangers players to record two hits on the evening as part of a balanced offensive attack. With no homers and three extra-base hits since May 4, Andrus' power production is beginning to taper off, but he's at least batted a respectable .281 in his subsequent 16 games to make him a satisfactory lineup option in most fantasy leagues.

Andrus went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBI in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead with an infield single in the first inning and then tied the game with an RBI double -- his eighth of the season -- as part of a four-run seventh inning. With 14 extra-base hits in 159 plate appearances this season, Andrus remains on pace to turn in a career-best slugging percentage to complement what's shaping up to be another 20-plus-steal campaign.

Andrus went 2-for-4 with three RBI, a stolen base and a run in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

With the Rangers trailing 4-2 in the seventh inning, Andrus delivered a clutch two-run single off Liam Hendriks, who had previously held the shortstop hitless in 12 career at-bats against him. It was Andrus' first multi-hit effort since May 5, breaking a seven-game stretch in which he went 4-for-26 (.154).

Andrus went 0-for-4 at the plate in Friday's 5-2 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus has been stuck in an offensive funk for about a week now, as he's recorded a .154/.241/.154 line over the Rangers' last seven games. Manager Jeff Banister still chose to keep Andrus in the No. 2 spot in the order Friday, but the shortstop could soon plummet in the lineup now that Rougned Odor is starting to show some signs of life.

Andrus went 3-for-6 with a double, RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 3-1 win over the Mariners in 13 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus recorded almost half of the Rangers' seven hits on the evening and continues to justify manager Jeff Banister's decision to deploy him in the cleanup spot. Though the shortstop has been regarded as a speed merchant for most of his career and still paces the team with six steals on the season, it's his growth as a power hitter that has really sent his fantasy value on an upward trajectory. His .504 slugging percentage is a career-best mark and trails only Joey Gallo among regulars in the Rangers lineup.

Andrus went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-4 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Following a 12-game stretch where he failed to deliver an extra-base hit, Andrus has started tapping back into the power he displayed in the first two weeks of the season. He's now compiled a pair of doubles and homers to go with four walks over his last seven games, boosting his OPS to a career-best .823 mark. If Andrus is able to maintain his power gains to go along with his typically steady batting average and skills as a base stealer, he could finish as a top-10 fantasy shortstop in most leagues.

Andrus went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

With three two-hit games in his last five starts, Andrus is starting to heat up again, but it hasn't resulted in a permanent move up the lineup just yet. Though the slumping Nomar Mazara was dropped from the No. 3 spot in the order to the eighth, it was on-base machine Shin-Soo Choo who instead received the appointment to the upper third of the lineup. Andrus has drawn walks in back-to-back games, but since he still only has a 4.9 percent walk rate for the season, he may need to scale back his free-swinging ways before manager Jeff Banister is convinced the shortstop is worthy of a more prominent lineup spot.

Andrus went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 14-3 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

After scoring no more than six runs in any of their last eight games, the Rangers finally broke out of the offensive doldrums Wednesday, with Andrus being one of five batters in the lineup to record multiple hits. While it's looking increasingly likely that the eight extra-base hits Andrus accrued in the first nine games of the season were fluky -- he's delivered only singles in his subsequent 12 contests -- the veteran shortstop should remain a quality source of batting average, runs and stolen bases as the season wears on.

Andrus will start at shortstop and bat in the cleanup spot Sunday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

After recording eight extra-base hits in his first nine games of the season, Andrus has cooled off in the power department, but that won't prevent manager Jeff Banister from giving him a look in the heart of the lineup. Expect Andrus to move back to either the No. 2 or 6 spot in the order during the series opener with the Twins on Monday, when Mike Napoli is expected to reclaim cleanup duties following a one-game rest.

Andrus is not in the lineup for Friday's contest with the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus is batting below the Mendoza Line in his past seven games, so he'll head to the bench for a night off. Jurickson Profar will slide over to shortstop to fill the void while Delino DeShields Jr. takes over in left field for the evening.
