Elvis Andrus wants to play with Ian Kinsler

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus knows he's been fortunate to have gone to two World Series and two All-Star Games before his 24th birthday.

"That's what you dream about as a kid is to be an All-Star and to play in the World Series," said Andrus, who turns 24 on Aug. 26. "It's been special to me to do that already."

Andrus was an All-Star reserve in 2010 when the game was in Anaheim. In that game, he got to play alongside teammate Ian Kinsler at second base. Kinsler is also at tonight's All-Star Game.

"I want to play with Ian again," Andrus said. "We played together a few years ago and it was fun. It was a good experience, and I'd like to do it again here in Kansas City."

That will be up to manager Ron Washington. But with both players coming off the bench, it's certainly possible they could be in together again.
