Elvis Andrus was rumored in trade talks this offseason, but the Texas Rangers decided to hang onto their starting shortstop, passing on Justin Upton as the reward. There's no confirmed evidence than any offers were actually made, or which other players may be involved, but Upton is now in Atlanta and the Rangers and Andrus may prefer heading toward free agency rather than looking at an extension with the club.
