So you say the calling card of Elvis Andrus is his defense yet dont mention his 32(!) errors last season?

And then you completely ignore the fact that the Rangers brought in Omar Vizquel to mentor the young speedster and to PLAY SS as the failsafe?

Way to do your homework.

Errors don't paint the whole picture. He's been regarded as a very highly talented fielder throughout his career and while 32 errors don't look good, it doesn't show everything.

Scouting report: His defensive skills are off the charts, both with the glove and his arm. He has plus speed that he uses at shortstop and on the basepaths. Has made great progress offensively and is developing into a future leadoff hitter.
