Elvis Andrus hasn't started back-to-back games for the Oakland Athletics since early August and he's not happy about it.

"Everybody knows I'm an everyday player. So doing this, it's not fun for me," he told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Of course I'm upset. I'm pissed about it. But like I said, the best I can do is stay positive and wait for my turn and be ready whatever happens."

Andrus, 33, has been one of the A's best hitters this season, but there is financial incentive to manipulate the veteran's playing time.

Under the terms of Andrus' contract, his $15 million club option for next season would convert to a player option if he were to accumulate 550 plate appearances this season.

He entered Sunday with 376 PAs, needing four plate appearances per game through the rest of the season to reach the threshold.
