    Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus (1) lays on the ground after being hit by a pitch from Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Keynan Middleton during the 9th inning at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, Wednesday, April 11, 2018. The Texas Rangers lost 7-2.

    Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has played in his first game since his right elbow was fractured when he got hit by a pitch two months ago.

    Andrus started an injury rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco on Monday night. He went 0 for 3 at the plate and had four assists on defense while playing five innings.

    Andrus got hit on his throwing elbow by a fastball from hard-throwing reliever Keynan Middleton in the ninth inning of a 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on April 11.

    This is the first time in his 10-season career that Andrus has been on the disabled list. Monday was the first day he was eligible to be reinstated from the 60-day DL, though he is expected to play several rehab games. He is scheduled to be the designated hitter when the RoughRiders play a midday game Tuesday.
