Elvis Andrus (SS) TEX - Dec. 01

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=761753



Andrus will be a utility infielder in 2021, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.



ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Isiah Kiner-Falefa will be the starting shortstop, moving Andrus to a bench role. The 32-year-old had been the Rangers' everyday shortstop for over a decade, so this is a big changing of the guard. He ended the 2020 season on the shelf with a back strain.

I think several of the veteran Rangers are mailing it in.  The offense
is dead last in OPS and they are tied with the Bucs for the MLB cellar
with 13 wins.  Unwatchable!

Unusually blunt words from a manager.

The Rangers will be taking longer looks at younger talent and are moving away from Andrus and Rougned Odor (eye) in the middle infield, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The club has been moving in this direction for the past 18 months, but this frustrating season is forcing the Rangers to change focus. One play Friday sealed the deal on Andrus, and Anderson Tejeda started at shortstop Saturday and Sunday. Andrus failed to get to a grounder that resulted in a run in Friday's loss. The batted ball left the bat at 81 MPH and had an expected batting average of .130, but Andrus failed to track it down. "That's a play that you would expect a shortstop to make, especially at this level," manager Chris Woodward said. "He didn't really say much about it after, but I kind of had a feeling; obviously we can all kind of see if there is some lower-back issue there. But he hasn't really performed to the level that we would expect or he would expect. I want to see Tejeda play. I want to see what we have." The Rangers have lost 17 out of 20, so the organization is focused on developing its talent for the next competitive window.
