MLB Rumors: Two Potential Destinations For Elvis Andrus

After being released earlier in the day by the Oakland A's, veteran shortstop Elvis Andrus is looking for work. 

He claims he's a starting shortstop, and was upset with his newfound part-time duty on the A's, leading to his release. "I'm p*ssed about it!"

So which team is ready to take on a 14-year veteran who doesn't want to ride the bench? According to MLB Insider Jon Heyman, a certain AL Central team could be in line for his services.

Heyman notes that the Chicago White Sox are missing their catalyst and starting shortstop Tim Anderson, and may present an option for Andrus. Anderson is out for another 5 weeks or so due to finger surgery, so Andrus would have plenty of time to etch a spot in the lineup if he performs.

He might not find a starting role anywhere else, but the New York Mets will be without their primary backup to Francisco Lindor for at least the next three weeks, Luis Guillorme. He's out with a groin strain. Perhaps the Mets could be interested in a veteran backup like Andrus.

The 34-year-old is hitting .237 this season, with 8 HR and 40 RBIs along with 7 SBs.
