SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is dealing with soreness in his right forearm and will be sidelined for at least a few days.
Assistant general manager Thad Levine said Saturday that Andrus has flexor tendinitis in his throwing arm. The team believes the issue stemmed from being overworked early in camp, and hope a few days off will allow him a chance to recover.
The team provided no exact timetable on when he might start throwing again.
Andrus didn't play winter ball for the first time in his career, and he knew it might take a little longer to get ready this spring.
The 25-year-old Andrus is going into his sixth season in the majors. He has played 757 games for the Rangers, 315 more than any current Texas player.
