Description: Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is just a .133 hitter (2-for-15) against Mariners starter Blake Beavan.
Insight: Andrus had an 11-game hitting streak end on Sunday, but got bat on the hit wagon Monday. Still, this is an unfavorable matchup to be avoided as even if he gets on base the struggling Rangers offense (two runs or less in five of last seven) will have problems knocking him in.

Description: Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus probably won't play Monday against Oakland. If he does, however, fantasy owners should avoid him at all costs.
Insight: Andrus (.263, 1 HR, 49 RBI, 35 SB) missed Sunday's game because of back tightness and with an 0-for-12 line against A's righthander Dan Straily, it makes sense for the Rangers to sit him again on Labor Day.
