After missing the Oakland series with tightness in his lower back, Andrus was slated to hit second and play shortstop during Friday's series opener against the Angels.

Andrus, hitting .263 with 49 RBIs in 133 games this season, had hoped to DH on Wednesday, but with the off-day Thursday, manager Ron Washington opted to give him some extra rest.
