Latest Update Rangers GM Jon Daniels will listen to trade offers for Elvis Andrus Sun Nov, 16, 10:42 PM
Is a tremendous athlete, which helps him greatly on defense at shortstop. Hits and runs well, and also has some pop in his bat. Is also an excellent base-stealer.
Flaws: : Is a little raw in most areas of baseball. Needs to cut down on his swing and become more patient at the plate. Still makes his share of errors at short, mostly mental.
The Rangers have Roughned Odor and Jurickson Profar in the infield, which could potentially make Andrus expendable. The Rangers have gaping holes in the outfield and starting rotation, and an Andrus trade could help fill them. Andrus's value is unlikely to change a whole lot even if he is traded.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Andrus is just two years into an eight-year, $120M deal, so if the Rangers are looking to rid themselves of the contract and go with one of their many middle infield prospects, the Yankees are certainly a team capable of picking up that contract. What they can offer in a trade, however, is a different story and that might be a sticking point for the Rangers.Analyst: Howard Bender
The speedy shortstop is going to sit this one out. Luis Sardinas is going to get the start at shortstop for the Rangers. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
The Rangers are starting to give playing time to their role players in an effort to see where they're at. Andrus is hitting .263 and will be making $15 million. No sense in risking injury over a pointless final three weeks.Analyst: Howard Bender
