New offseason work ethic benefits Rangers' Elvis Andrus


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus had one of the worst seasons of his career in 2014, and he thinks he's figured out why. 

Andrus told Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News that, heading into last season, he did very little offseason work. He arrived at spring training out of shape and hurt his shoulder early in the season. 

As a result, Andrus had a career-low .263 average, the fifth-lowest OPS in the American League and 18 errors. 

This past winter, Andrus was among of 12 Rangers that stayed in town to work out regularly. He also did yoga and Pilates for the first time, helping him to get into the best shape in his career. 

"Last year, that was an off-season that I hope never happens again in my career,” Andrus told Fraley. “It taught me the don’t-do-it part of the game."

Report: Very doubtful Yankees acquire Rangers SS Elvis Andrus


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) It appears very doubtful the Yankees will make a trade to acquire Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, according to ESPN senior writer Andrew Marchand. Andrus has been rumored to be a potential option to replace longtime Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who played his final season in 2014.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez is a more likely option for the Yankees than Andrus, but nothing is close at the moment.


Report: Elvis Andrus could be option to replace Jeter at short for Yanks

Rangers to consider deals for 'core-type' players


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Both Andrus and Beltre are owed a significant amount of money going forward, and it's possible the team would have to cover some salary in deals for either player.
