Rangers SS Andrus in much different spot with Beltre retired

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP)—Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus prepared for the first full-squad workout at a different locker than in past springs.

Now 30 and going into his 11th season, Andrus is in a much different place than just his spot in the clubhouse.

With star third baseman Adrian Beltre now retired, Andrus will be assuming a bigger leadership role on a team with a lot of 20-something position players in the lineup with him.

Sorry, folks, this article doesn’t mean that Andrus is moving to third base.
