Andrus was signed in 2005 to a six-figure contract. He started the year with the Orlando Braves of the Gulf Coast League, and was promoted to Danville late in the season. He spent 2006 with Class-A Rome, being named to the South Atlantic League All-Star team.
In 2007 Andrus joined the Myrtle Beach Pelicans of the Carolina League. During the midseason he was selected to the All-Star Futures Game; he wears.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20080623&content_id=2990451&vkey=news_tex&fext=.jsp&c_id=tex |title=Andrus excelling in minor leagues |publisher=Texas.rangers.mlb.com |date=June 23, 2008 |accessdate=October 3, 2011}}</ref>
On July 31, 2007, Andrus, along with Jarrod Saltalamacchia and three other minor league pitchers (Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz and Beau Jones), were traded from the Braves to the Rangers for Mark Teixeira and Ron Mahay.
With Rangers shortstop Michael Young agreeing to move to third base in 2009, Andrus earned the starting job on opening day. He was the second-youngest player in the American League. As Andrus was only 20 years old, Texas signed veteran shortstop Omar Vizquel for insurance.
Andrus stole his 20th base on July 28, 2009 in his rookie season. Andrus was the 10th player in major league history to steal 20 bases under the age of 21. The last player to do that was then-teammate Andruw Jones in 1997 with the Atlanta Braves. Andrus was named to the 2010 American League All-Star team as a reserve shortstop.
In 2011, Andrus batted .279, with 5 home runs. He was 3rd in the American League in sacrifice hits (16), 4th in caught stealing (12), and 5th in stolen bases (37). On defense, he led all AL shortstops in errors, with 25, and was 2nd among league shortstops in putouts (245) and 3rd in assists (407).
Andrus' older brother Erold Andrus played in the Independent Leagues in 2009 and 2010, as an outfielder. He previously played in the Yankees, Twins, and Tampa Bay Rays organizations.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
