Aging Elvis: Back issues, questions about future as Texas SS



Elvis Andrus was once that 20-year-old shortstop making his big league debut for the Texas Rangers. Now he's 32 and his 12th season is done because of lingering back issues. That has raised questions about his future as the Rangers' shortstop. The team has been taking an extended look at its young players now. Andrus has two years left on his contract, and says he's confident he's still a productive player. He'll get injections instead of having surgery. When manager Chris Woodward was talking about his starting shortstop next season, he said that was up to Andrus being healthy and playing well.
