Elvis Andrus gets a day off for the finale of the Rangers' three-game series against San Diego. He made two iffy throws Tuesday night, and manager Ron Washington will pull the trigger on sitting Andrus if he sees sloppiness in the field. Washington equates that to mental fatigue. The clubhouse isn't open yet, so that's pure speculation. Washington might just be using today and the off day Thursday to get Andrus two days off while missing only one game.
