Elvis Andrus anyone?

Yesterday The Dallas Morning News ran an article talking about how hot they are for starting pitching. It says that they'll be searching for top starting pitching via trade in the offseason. Considering the Giants are deepest in pitching, I took a look at the article.

The author proposes trading their top Short Stop prospect, 19 year old Elvis Andrus. With the Giants strength with pitching, gaping hole at short, and with the author's belief that Andrus may be All-star caliber, it seems like there might be a good match.

Does anyone know anything on Andrus? Should the Giants be interested in a swap? If so, what would it take to get him?

Here's a little on Andrus from the article:

Andrus: Andrus began the season as the Rangers' top-ranked prospect and has done nothing during the year to lose that title. Andrus has played the entire season at Double-A as a teenager (he turns 20 on Aug. 26). Like Beltre, his offensive numbers have shot up in the second half of the season. You look at his numbers at age 19 compared with those of Edgar Renteria at the same age and you have a pretty good idea of what Andrus may be – an athletic, All-Star caliber shortstop for more than a decade.
