Rangers | Elvis Andrus nursing injuries

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:34:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus (back, hamstring) had wraps on his back and hamstring Wednesday, May 4, and he is out of the lineup Thursday, May 5. 2B Hanser Alberto is hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus' injuries seem to be minor, but you should keep an eye on him to see how he responds. Alberto is hitting .118 (2-for-17) and is a daily option to avoid against Happ, who is off to a great start in 2016.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara not in lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:21:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Jose Quintana Friday, April 22. OF Ryan Rua is starting in right field and is batting seventh, while SS Elvis Andrus moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is a low-end deep outfield sleeper in daily contests tonight. Tonight would be the night to take a chance on Andrus, though, with the move up the lineup before Texas' big bats.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus takes a seat

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 09:42:53 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at shortstop and is batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto had a hot spring but hit just .222 (22-for-99) with no home runs in 41 games for the Rangers in 2015. He's merely an option in deeper AL-only leagues and shouldn't draw much attention for daily gamers this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Alberto is hitting .247 in limited playing time this season and should not be an option in fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus in line for tough night?

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:47:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus has a .194/.265/.226 triple slash line in 34 career plate appearances against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has underwhelmed at the plate all year, and he doesn't do anything offensively that stands out. He'll continue to be a very average FantasyScore starting shortstop.

Rangers | A strong finish coming for Elvis Andrus?

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:48:22 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, a home run and two RBI during the Rangers 6-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owns a .350/.375/.467 slash line with nine runs, nine RBI and two stolen bases over his past 15 games. He has been bumped up to the two-hole the past two games, too. Andrus stands to finish strong, especially if he sticks hitting second in the order. Seasonal owners looking for middle infield help can look to Andrus as a potential upside add.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus moves into two-hole

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:29:56 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is batting second against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been hitting lower in the lineup, so this is a nice fantasy boost, and it improves his runs scored upside. Over his past 15 games, Andrus has a .310 batting average with six runs and eight RBI. He stands as a sneaky value play at shortstop for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus continues to fade

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:04:20 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus' .624 OPS ranks 56th of 57 qualifying players with at least 350 plate appearances this year, and he's on pace for his third straight year of at least 600 at-bats and an OPS lower than .660.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) not only continues to not generate any power, but he's also only stolen nine bases and isn't a lock for 20 thefts. He certainly shouldn't be owned in shallow mixed formats, and he's a weak FantasyScore option heading into the second half.
