    Elvis Andrus had a well-documented awful spring last year that led to the worst season of his MLB career.

    That bad spring was attributed to a lack of off-season work and coming to spring training out of shape.

    This year, Andrus made a concerted effort to stay in better shape through the winter and come to spring training ready to roll. He did that.

    Now, he's dealing with knee soreness and he's backed off of baseball activity of the past couple of days.

    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the Andrus knee situation isn't a major concern at the moment, but it's not the start you wanted to see from a key piece of the core of the team that has to have a bounce-back season this year in order for the Rangers to be successful.
