Elvis Andrus (SS)

Texas Rangers - 94% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Andrus went 2-for-5 with 1 RBI and a stolen base. He is now batting; .183/.180/.447 with 1 home run, 6 RBI and 2 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: It's an understatement to say that Andrus has been struggling this season. He was drafted to be a speed/average player but so far he hasn't given much of that at all. Some fantasy players have considered dropping him outright but I urge you to stay patient with him. He is still a very capable player and when he goes on a hot streak the steals will come in bunches and he will make owners forget about this slow start.

Elvis Andrus had a much needed great day at the plate, with 2 hits, including a home run and a stolen base. He hit his home run off Jose Alverez. He is now hitting; .184 with 1 home run, 4 RBI and a stolen base.

Fantasy Impact: This is the kind of things that Andrus was drafted for. Okay, maybe not the power but drafters definitely want to see him get on base and steal some bags. So far this season he has struggled quite a bit, but we are all hoping this boost in confidence will turn him around. He may have hit a home run in this game but we may only see 2 more from him all year.

In a game that went to extras, Andrus was given 7 at bats but could only muster 1 hit. He has struggled this season, hitting .161/.161/.323 with 0 home runs, 2 RBI and o stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: We were looking for a much needed bounce back year from Andrus in 2015 but so far it hasn't happened. It is still very early but he just hasn't been good at all. It would be a risky venture to buy into him at this point, you will be better off looking elsewhere until he picks it up.

Elvis Andrus has not come out of the gates swinging so far in 2015. He continued to struggle on Thursday by going 0-for-5 in a game where the Rangers put up 10 runs. He also did not take advantage of some great opportunities as he left six runners on base.

Fantasy Impact: Andrus is only batting .125 to begin the season and today's performance was especially dreadful. He has dropped way down in the batting order and is coming off a down year in 2014. Fantasy owners should still hold onto Andrus for now as he provides an excellent speed option.

He went hit less in the season opener, so these hits are his first of the season. His hits came of righty Jesse Hahn and lefty Eric O'Flaherty.

Fantasy Impact: Even though he has yet to steal a base, he is showing that he is capable of achieving one of his keys to success. That key is the ability to get on base. If he keeps this up, the stolen bases will follow and he will have a great fantasy season.

Andrus was kept out of the lineup on Monday because of lower back stiffness, but expects to return to baseball activities on Wednesday. He told Jeff Wilson; "There is nothing to worry about." (Source: Jeff Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A few weeks ago Andrus gave the same answer when he was dealing with a knee injury and it turned out to be nothing major, so there is no reason not to believe him. This year he will be counted on to bounce back and put up elite stolen base numbers as well as a good average. Much of his success will hinge on his ability to stay healthy and the performance of the players around him.

Early this Spring, Elvis Andrus dealt with some knee soreness, but it looks as though he is back on track. With a hit in Sunday's loss to The Mariners, his line is an excellent .440/.462/1.062 with 0 home runs, 3 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Andrus is a speed/average fantasy player and should never be relied upon for home runs and RBI. The fact the he has yet to pick up a stolen base sticks out in his stat line, but The Rangers have likely kept him from running to protect his knee. This Spring he has shown that he can get on base at a high rate and if it continues into the regular season, he will get many chances to use his speed. Andrus and owners alike are hoping that this will be the year he finally breaks out.

Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is dealing with some knee soreness and will likely be held out of the Spring Training opener because of it. The team and Andrus have said it is not serious. (Source: Jeff Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The injury is said to not be a major concern but if it becomes serious, this would be a hinderance in Andrus' much needed bounce back year. This season was a down year for ndrus, as he hit .263, with only a .647 OPS, adding only two home runs and 41 RBI. Most alarmingly for his owners, he only had 27 stolen bases. Those statistics were no where near the value that drafters expected from him. He has the potential to deliver a big 2015 performance with a healthy team around him but be sure to temper expectations and keep tabs on his injury.
