Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated Wednesday that Elvis Andrus is a candidate to bat leadoff.

“We have several guys that we’ll probably look at, but as far as experience goes, [Andrus] is the most experienced guy,” Melvin said. “On-base percentage plays into how we do that. We want our top couple guys in the lineup to get on base. And healthy, Elvis can do that. He’s really driven right now. He wants to resurrect his career, had some injuries last year.” With Marcus Semien, Tommy La Stella and Robbie Grossman gone, the A's are looking at remaking the top couple spots in their batting order. Andrus has batted just .260/.306/.378 over the last three seasons -- which includes an ugly .194/.252/.330 line in 2020 -- so he doesn't look like a great option to hit leadoff. He would certainly be more interesting for fantasy purposes if the A's use him there, though, particularly if he starts running again. Ramon Laureano and Mark Canha would also seem to be candidates to hit leadoff. Feb 17 5:54 pm (EST)
