Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus comes into camp this year a little lighter than he was last year, and he's hoping that'll help him reach 40 stolen bases for the second time in his career. Andrus was ill-prepared for the 2014 season, and he hit .263 with 41 RBI, just 38 extra-base hits and was caught stealing a league-high 15 times. He added yoga and pilates to his workout routine this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Andrus' rough 2014 season all around will cause many of your league mates to sour on him this year. However, he's only a year removed from 42 stolen bases and two years removed from a .286 average. He won't ever hit for power, but Andrus presents a nice buying opportunity at a very scarce position.

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is looking to bounce back after career-low numbers in batting average (.263), on-base percentage (.314) and runs (72, tied with 2009).
Fantasy Tip: In standard fantasy formats Andrus is worth a look as an MI or utility player in the later rounds in mixed formats. In FantasyScore, Andrus could come on the cheap early in the season after his putrid season a year ago. He could be a very good value early on, but it might not last long if he returns to his normal career levels.
