Andrus, who has never been on the disabled list in his Major League career, has not played since Monday because of the elbow. He also missed four games early in the spring because of a sore shoulder and elbow.
Andrus is 11-for-35 in the Cactus League. He won't play shortstop before the Rangers leave Arizona, but he is able to get his at-bats in a Minor League game. That was the plan for Andrus on Friday.
