The Texas Rangers are considering trading 2B Ian Kinsler or SS Elvis Andrus in order to make room in the middle infield for SS Jurickson Profar, according to major league sources. Kinsler could also make a position switch to first base, but he's also seemingly easier to deal. Kinsler is owed $57 million over the next four years and has a $10 million option or $5 million buyout in 2018. Andrus is guaranteed $126,475,000 over the next nine seasons.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said Sunday, Sept. 1, that he doesn't expect SS Elvis Andrus (back) to play Monday, Sept. 2. He is hopeful the shortstop will be able to return Tuesday, Sept. 3, against the Oakland Athletics.
Fantasy Tip: If you have healthier alternatives, it might be a good idea to use them heading into the new scoring period. Andrus is likely to miss at least one game, and there is no guarantee he'll be ready Tuesday, especially since rosters have expanded and teams have more flexibility.
