Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been scratched because of what the club called ''sensitivity in his left arm'' - apparently caused by a tattoo. Andrus spent nine hours the two days before Thursday's spring training game against the Indians under a needle. He wanted a likeness of his late father, Emilo Andrus, who died in 1996 when Elvis was 7. Andrus tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he'll be ready to play Friday. He says: ''It's a memory of my dad. I'm really proud that it's going to be on myself forever.'' The tattoo covers most of Andrus' left arm from the elbow to shoulder. It will apparently be his last. He says ''I'm done with this, too much pain.'' Jurickson Profar replaced Andrus at shortstop against Cleveland. Andrus will leave the Rangers on Saturday to join Venezuela for the World Baseball Classic.
