Elvis Andrus 'among top candidates' to hit leadoff in Oakland

Elvis Andrus, who was recently acquired by the A's via trade with the Rangers, is a candidate to hit leadoff, per manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Impact

“We have several guys that we’ll probably look at, but as far as experience goes, [Andrus] is the most experienced guy,” Melvin was quoted on Wednesday. He went on to add “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.” The article went on to mention that Andrus has a career .341 OBP over 182 games when batting out of the leadoff spot. What it neglected to mention, though, was Andrus' struggles over the last few seasons. He finished 2020 with a horrid .194/.252/.330 batting line to go along with three home runs and seven RBI across 103 at-bats with the Rangers. With all that said, it sounds like the veteran shortstop will compete for the leadoff spot, which would make him worth a late-round flyer in fantasy leagues if he were to secure it.
