Andrus went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run scored in the Rangers' 6-1 win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Andrus capped off yet another productive season Sunday in which he had two stolen bases, one in the first and another in the third inning. The 31-year-old finished the season slashing .275/.313/.393 while hitting 12 home runs, driving in 72 runs, and stealing 31 bases.
Andrus went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 12-10 loss to Boston.
Since being put on notice that he'll face competition for his starting job next season, Andrus has hits in three straight games, going 5-for-11 with three extra-base hits and five RBI. Prior to his mini-outburst, Andrus was batting just .227 over 242 at-bats since the All-Star break, hence the Rangers making public a desire to open up the competition at shortstop next spring.
