Rangers' Andrus out due to soreness from tattoo
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been scratched because of what the club called "sensitivity in his left arm" — apparently caused by a tattoo.
Andrus spent nine hours the two days before Thursday's spring training game against the Indians under a needle. He wanted a likeness of his late father, Emilo Andrus, who died in 1996 when Elvis was 7.
Andrus tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he'll be ready to play Friday. He says: "It's a memory of my dad. I'm really proud that it's going to be on myself forever."
