Elvis Andrus

The 35-year-old shortstop spent the last 1.5 seasons with the Chicago White Sox after having been dealt to the Athletics in 2021. He is not near the All-Star caliber player he was early on in his career when he helped the Rangers get to two World Series, but Andrus is still a reliable ballplayer.

In 112 games last season, he posted a .251/.304/.358 batting line, not too far below his career numbers. He added 12 stolen bases and had a 1.1 fWAR for the season. He is currently one of the better free agents left on the market and he can certainly help a team.

Rangers fans would definitely like to see Andrus thrive for the rest of his career. He remains one of the most beloved figures in recent memory in Arlington. The Venezuelan can still provide depth and leadership as you can't find a teammate of his that doesn't have glowing reviews of the times they had playing alongside Andrus.
