Rangers rumors: Elvis Andrus to be either traded or extended

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been involved in trade rumors lately, and the team will make a decision on him soon.

Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been in the rumor mill a lot lately, whether it be as an extension candidate or a trade candidate.

The Rangers will make a decision on him over the next 10-12 months as to whether to trade him or re-sign him, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Heyman continues and says that this means he will likely be on the trading block next winter, and that Texas will try to clear a roster spot for prospect Jurickson Profar by then.

The Rangers are not optimistic about being able to re-sign Andrus long-term, but they they would rather trade him than lose him for nothing after the 2014 season. He will certainly be a coveted asset, and should fetch a good return for the Rangers.

Texas thinks so highly of Andrus that they did not want to trade him for Justin Upton over the offseason.

The decision on whether Profar will make this year's roster will depend on whether or not Rangers manager Ron Washington can get Profar a high-amount of at-bats. The team would not want to stunt the growth of one of the most promising prospects in baseball.

It is yet to be seen what the market would be for Andrus.
