Elvis Andrus started a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco Tuesday.

Andrus was 0 for 3 with two groundouts and a strikeout as the designated hitter at Dr Pepper Ballpark.

He was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain on Wednesday. He’s eligible to return to the Rangers on Saturday.

Andrus is off to one of his best starts in the majors. He’s batting .325 with 6 home runs and 26 RBIs in 38 games.

Andrus had never been on the injured list until last season, when he missed time with a leg injury.
