SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus goes into his 12th major league season with several distinctions. He is the only player left in the Rangers clubhouse to wear that uniform in a World Series. The 31-year-old Andrus is the club's longest-tenured player by five years and is expected to be the oldest regular starting shortstop in the majors. Andrus says he still believes he's a rookie and never wants to feel comfortable. Manager Chris Woodward says Andrus worked hard this offseason and has things he wants to prove as one of the rare big league shortstops older than 30.
