Top Elvis Andrus News

  • Elvis Andrus: Released by Arizona

    The Diamondbacks released Andrus on Friday.

    Andrus presumably opted out of his minor-league contract after being told he would not be part of the Opening Day roster. He went 2-for-17 at the plate this spring. The 35-year-old will now be on the lookout for a new organization that's in need of reserve infielder help.

  • Diamondbacks' Elvis Andrus: Starts at shortstop

    Andrus started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 in Saturday's spring game against the Rangers.

    With Geraldo Perdomo (knee) still day-to-day, Andrus was given the starting nod Saturday. Perdomo's been out since Tuesday, but manager Torey Lovullo does not feel the injury will impact his availability for Opening Day. Given that, the Diamondbacks are trying to settle on a backup at shortstop, and the non-rostered Andrus has the most experience at the position. Arizona is also giving the currently rostered Jace Peterson and Emmanuel Rivera innings there, and the club may want prospects Blaze Alexander and Jordan Lawlar to get regular at-bats in the minors. This was Andrus' third Cactus League appearance and second at short -- he's also played third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Elvis Andrus: Makes Arizona debut

    Andrus started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Sunday's spring game against the Dodgers.

    Andrus made his debut for the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He was signed a week ago as another option to compete for a backup infield job. The organization needs someone that can back up Geraldo Perdomo at shortstop and also to fill in at second and third base. Andrus played both of those positions last season with the White Sox and will get more time at each position as Arizona evaluates him.

  • Diamondbacks' Elvis Andrus: Links up with Arizona

    Andrus agreed to a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Sunday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Andrus spent last season with the White Sox, and he was unable to secure a major-league contract for 2024 after he posted a .251/.304/.358 slash line with six homers and 12 steals in 112 contests. The 34-year-old should compete for a roster spot as a backup middle infielder.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Taking seat Thursday

    Andrus is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Diamondbacks.

    Andrus has been seeing most of the playing time at second base for the White Sox lately, but he'll yield to Lenyn Sosa for this one. Andrus has collected a .674 OPS across 109 games for the Pale Hose this season.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Heads to bench

    Andrus will sit Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Andrus has hit well down the stretch, slashing .347/.368/.521 over his last 33 games. He finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games, however, with the White Sox seemingly seeing no reason to give everyday at-bats to a 35-year-old on an expiring contract in a season that's long since gone off track. Lenyn Sosa will be Saturday's second baseman.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Sitting Wednesday

    Andrus is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Andrus has been productive lately when he's played, hitting .326 with one home run, four runs, six RBI and one steal in 14 games this month. Lenyn Sosa is manning the keystone and batting eighth.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Nabs fourth straight start

    Andrus will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game in Washington, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Andrus had appeared to move into a utility role toward the end of August, but he'll pick up his fourth consecutive start Monday and seems to have supplanted Lenyn Sosa as the White Sox's preferred option at the keystone. The 34-year-old is on an expiring deal and thus doesn't look to be a part of the White Sox's long-term plan in a non-contending season, but he's made it tough for manager Pedro Grifol to remove him from the lineup in recent weeks. Dating back to Aug. 1, Andrus has arguably been Chicago's top hitter overall, slashing .353/.375/.543 with four home runs and six stolen bases across a stretch of 33 games.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Racks up four hits

    Andrus went 4-for-5 with a double in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Royals.

    Andrus filled in atop the lineup and at shortstop with Tim Anderson (neck) scratched with neck stiffness shortly before the game. Over his last 15 games, Andrus has gone 23-for-56 (.411) with eight multi-hit efforts. The veteran infielder is slashing .256/.317/.361 with five home runs, 37 RBI, 35 runs scored and 11 stolen bases over 348 plate appearances. Andrus would likely continue to play at shortstop if Anderson needs additional time.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Added to lineup Wednesday

    Andrus was added to the lineup for Wednesday's game at Kansas City.

    The veteran infielder will cover shortstop and bat leadoff after Tim Anderson had to be scratched due to neck stiffness. Andrus went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Royals and is slashing .370/.400/.568 with three homers, 17 RBI, five steals and 14 runs over his last 22 games (85 plate appearances) dating back to Aug. 4.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Losing work to Sosa

    Andrus is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

    Andrus will end up taking a seat for the final three games of the White Sox's four-game set in Oakland with youngster Lenyn Sosa having seemingly gained hold of a regular spot in the middle infield next to shortstop Tim Anderson. Though Andrus has turned in an .889 OPS through 20 games in August, he's a 35-year-old infielder on an expiring deal who likely won't be much of a priority for the 51-79 White Sox heading into the final month of the season.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Takes seat Friday

    Andrus is not in the lineup Friday against the Athletics.

    Lenyn Sosa will cover second base and bat eighth. Andrus is presumably getting a routine breather after coming to life with a .352/.361/.578 slash line across his last 72 plate appearances dating back to Aug. 4.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Racking up stolen bases

    Andrus went 1-for-4 with a stolen base Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Andrus had been serving as the primary leadoff hitter with Tim Anderson sidelined by a suspension. With Anderson now back in action, Andrus shifted down one spot in the order and also made only his second start of the season at third base. On the field, Andrus managed his 11th stolen base of the campaign and third in his last eight starts. With potential at-bats at three different positions, he should see consistent at-bats down the stretch.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Ejected Sunday

    Andrus was ejected from Sunday's game against the Rockies in the top of the sixth inning for yelling from the dugout, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Andrus went 0-for-3 to begin Sunday's matchup and was unable to finish the game due to his ejection. However, it seems unlikely that his ejection will result in further discipline, so he should be available for Monday's series opener against the Mariners.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Lone source of offense

    Andrus went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Friday against the Rockies.

    Andrus has stepped into the leadoff role of late with Tim Anderson (suspension) in and out of the lineup. He's quietly excelled in the role, tallying hits in four consecutive games while going 8-for-18 with two runs scored and five RBI in the same span. Andrus' season-long line is still underwhelming, but he looks to be locked into everyday playing time to close the season.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Adds three more hits

    Andrus went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Guardians.

    After doubling twice earlier in the game, Andrus put the White Sox on top 5-3 in the ninth inning with a two-run single off Emmanuel Clase. It's the second straight three-hit game for Andrus, who filled in for Tim Anderson at shortstop Sunday. The 34-year-old Andrus is now 7-for-12 (.583) over his last three games, with four doubles and a home run in that span. Overall, he's slashing .223/.294/.318 with three homers, 25 RBI, 24 runs scored and eight steals across 270 plate appearances this season. Andrus could be in line for more playing time in the short term given that Anderson is facing a likely suspension.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Notches homer, two steals in win

    Andrus went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, two total runs and two stolen bases in a 7-4 victory against Cleveland on Saturday.

    It was a big game for the veteran infielder, as he hit just his third homer of the campaign while swiping a pair of bags. Andrus finished with his second three-hit game of the season and snapped out of a six-game cold spell during which he went 1-for-13. The 34-year-old had already been seeing increased playing time since Jake Burger was traded at the deadline, and Andrus could be needed to fill in temporarily at shortstop if Tim Anderson, who exchanged punches in an on-field fight with Jose Ramirez on Saturday, is suspended as a result.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Could be top option at second base

    Andrus went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Tuesday against the Rangers.

    Andrus drew the first start at second base for the White Sox after the team dealt away Jake Burger at the trade deadline. He had previously slipped into a backup role for the team, but Andrus could see an uptick in playing time while also competing with Zach Remillard for reps at the position. Andrus has only seven hits across his last 31 at-bats and 13 games.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Losing work to Burger

    Andrus is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Andrus appeared to overtake Zach Remillard as Chicago's primary second baseman last week, but both players could be ticketed for utility roles moving forward. With Yoan Moncada returning from the injured list Tuesday and stepping back in as the White Sox's everyday third baseman, Jake Burger has now picked up consecutive starts at the keystone. Despite his defensive limitations at second base, Burger looks like he could settle in as the primary option at the position as the White Sox aim to keep his potent bat in the lineup.
