The Rangers are one of those organizations who seem less patient that others when it comes to bringing rookies along into the majours. The fact that they did move Young to 3rd to give this guy a chance DOES surprise me and qualifies Andrus for being a sleeper. Yet it wouldn't surprise me to see them putting Blalock back in at 3rd and moving Young back to SS.
To me, he's like a Tony Pena Jr. Could be potentially very big or could have a rough go of it for a couple of pro seasons.

After picking up Brandon Phillips 2 weeks later, my roster consisted of Jose Reyes, Hanley Ramirez, Dave Roberts, and Brandon Phillips. Needless to say, all but Phillips were off my team and had been traded for superior talent as I was blowing the league away in steals. The moral of the story? Andrus has a realistic shot to perform like Hanley Ramirez, maybe not the power and maybe not so soon, but I'd pick him up if he is available, the Rangers lineup is POTENT! Even batting 9th, Andrus has Kinsler and Young batting behind him to knock him in.
