|Elvis Andrus smacks double Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus went 1 for 2 with a double Wednesday after missing his team's last four games with flexor tendinitis in his right arm.
"I let it go. Yesterday, I think I was a little careful, but today I felt good with throwing to the bases and stuff," Andrus told MLB.com. "I didn't feel anything. I feel a lot stronger."
Andrus was initially expected to return Thursday or Friday but convinced manager Ron Washington to let him start Wednesday.

(3/3/14) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, who is sidelined with flexor tendinitis in his right arm, played catch Monday, MLB.com reports.

Andrus, who has also dealt with back issues over the past week, hit .271/.328/.331 with four home runs, 91 runs and 42 stolen bases in 620 at-bats last season.

|Elvis Andrus shakes off back injury |

(2/27/14) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus was able to play through lingering back issues Thursday, in the team's spring opener against the Royals. He went 0 for 2 with one strikeout before being replaced, and had little issue playing the field in an 11-7 win.
Andrus was considered day to day due to the injury, so it isn't much of a surprise that he was able to play. This is not expected to be an issue that troubles him moving forward.

Elvis Andrus smacks double Wednesday
Hanson hit hard in Rangers' 8-2 loss to Rockies
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Prince Fielder singled home fellow Texas newcomer Shin-Soo Choo but Tommy Hanson gave up two runs on three consecutive extra-base hits in the first inning before settling down in the Rangers' 8-2 loss to a Colorado Rockies split-squad Wednesday.
|Whoever got in Elvis Andrus' ear and told him that his best offensive attribute is, ahem, his speed gets a big thumbs up from Fantasy owners. Thanks mostly to his career-high 42 stolen bases, exactly double his 2012 total, he finished in the top two at shortstop in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie leagues last year. Of course, on a per-game basis, he didn't measure up to Hanley Ramirez, Troy Tulowitzki and Jose Reyes, who all missed significant time with injuries, but if nothing else, he proved he's still an asset at the position after giving everyone a bit of a scare in 2012. Though at age 25, continued improvement with the bat isn't too far-fetched, Andrus' percentages have held steady over his first five seasons, which suggests he is who he is as far as that goes. Fortunately, batting high in a loaded lineup gives him plenty of run-scoring potential even though he's not much of an on-base threat, but if he ever does stop running, he won't have much to fall back on. Though significantly more valuable in real life because of his defense, Andrus is just outside the top five shortstops in Fantasy. He may go a couple rounds earlier in Head-to-Head than Rotisserie.
