Latest Update Andrus triples, scores twice in win Sat Jul, 26, 05:32 AM
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 offense has been struggling of late, but Andrus managed to do his part to end his team's three-game skid. He is now sitting on a .262 average with two home runs, 24 RBI, 53 runs scored and 20 stolen bases through 404 at-bats, as he manages to make the best of a miserable season in Arlington.

The Rangers are getting annihilated, so it isn't like Andrus would have been the game changer. Consider him day-to-day and expect him in the lineup on Friday.Analyst: David Kerr
Andrus has now logged back-to-back three-hit games which has raised his stat line to .272 with 2 home runs, 19 RBI, 47 runs scored and 19 stolen bases. He has been a great contributor in both the runs scored and stolen base categories this season, and should remain a constant threat in both areas as long as he can maintain his respectable .320 on-base percentage. Analyst: Matthew Beck
The stolen bases were numbers 15 and 16 for Andrus who is fifth in the American League in steals and is on pace to swipe 30-plus for the fifth time in his six year career.Analyst: Michael Pichan
