BEFORE FAME

Elvis was acquired by the Texas Rangers from the Atlanta Braves – along with RHP Neftali Feliz, LHP Matt Harrison, LHP Beau Jones and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia – in a blockbuster seven-player trade for 1b Mark Teixeira and LHP Ron Mahay on July 31, 2007.

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Elvis compiled the best season of his nine-year major-league career with the Texas Rangers in 2017, establishing single-season highs in home runs (20), extra-base hits (68), doubles (44), RBI (88), hits (191), runs (100), total bases (303), OPS (.808) and slugging percentage (.471). The two-time American-League All-Star ranked among A.L. leaders in hits (3rd, 191), doubles (T4th, 44), games (T6th, 158), runs (T7th, 100), total bases (9th, 303), extra-base hits (T9th, 68), stolen bases (10th, 25), multi-hit games (3rd, 54) and three-plus-hit games (3rd, 20). In ’17, Elvis had the first 20 HR/20 SB season by a Texas shortstop since Toby Harrah in 1977. He became just the fourth player with a 20-plus HR season in the ninth-or-later season in his major-league career after never having a 10-plus HR campaign, joining Cap Anson (1884), Lonnie Smith (1989) and John Vander Wal (2000). Elvis is the longest-tenured Rangers position player since making his major league debut on Opening Day in 2009 and is the franchise’s all-time leader in stolen bases with 241.

FUN FACT

Elvis was the recipient of the Rangers’ 2014 Jim Sundberg Community Achievement Award for significant contributions in the community. He participated in the club’s hospital visits and Cowboy Santa’s Toy Drive in December of 2014. Elvis has also been actively involved with the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas, participating with a number of other prominent Dallas-Fort Worth individuals in that organization’s 2014 Charity Calendar and hosting a Thanksgiving event for Guild families in November 2013.
