Cold: Elvis Andrus
When you start the week by not recording a single hit in a four game series, you know you’ll end up in the “cold section” unless you go on an absolute tear to finish the week. Andrus has been much better in the second half of the season, but he struggled mightily the past week, especially in the beginning.
Andrus was shut out in Seattle, going 0-for-14 in the four game series. That being said, no one hit worth a lick in Seattle. He was able to make contact in every at bat, and did get robbed on a beautiful double play by Seattle SS Ketel Marte. Still, going 0-for-14 is never a good look.
The friendly confines of Globe Life Park in Arlington seemed to have changed his fortunes, as he hit a career high three doubles on Saturday, September 13th. He followed that up by going 1-for-3 with two walks in the route against the Oakland A’s.
