Elvis Andrus Agrees To Eight-Year Contract Deal With Texas Rangers

Texas Rangers young stud shortstop Elivs Andrus, who had been rumored to be on the block to make room for MLB’s top rated prospect Jurickson Profar is said to be on the verge of signing an extension of some sort that would give him a eight-year deal worth as much as $120 million.

Andrus, only 24 and having produced well in the majors the past four seasons, will remain a key cog in the Rangers up-the-middle defense which also has second baseman Ian Kinsler locked up through 2017.

As competitive as the AL West is between the Rangers and the Anaheim Angels, keeping their talent is obvously a priority. Andrus would had been eligible for free agencey after the 2014 season.

For those that are looking to get a fantasy baseball edge with Andrus, he remains a solid SS1 in deeper fantasy formats and should continue to build some strength which should translate into some extra home runs. A statline of .290, 8, 30 is not out of question.
