Rangers’ Elvis Andrus Has Possible Elbow Fracture

Published

on

The Texas Rangers aren’t too happy with the results of X-rays of shortstop Elvus Andrus’ elbow.

The Rangers said, via a press release, that Andrus’ initial X-rays “indicate the probability of a fracture in the elbow.”

Andrus is set to undergo additional X-rays and a CT scan on Thursday, but his elbow has already been placed in a splint and things don’t seem to be trending in the right direction.

Dallas Morning News’ Evan Grant says that the shortstop has been diagnosed with a fracture in his right elbow, which would mean a lengthy stay on the disabled list and a big hole in the Rangers infield, and batting order.

Andrus, 29, is off to a hot start in the 2018 campaign, batting a sizzling .327, 2 homers, and 3 doubles, picking up where he left off in 2017, which was a career year.
