Adrian Beltre (calf) said Monday that he is unsure about his status for the World Baseball Classic.
Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf shortly after arriving at Rangers camp and he still hasn't tried to run at full speed. The Dominican third baseman will have to make a decision about the first round of the WBC by Thursday. Texas' medical staff would probably prefer he remain in Arizona all spring. Feb 27 - 10:43 AM

Adrian Beltre (calf) will do some jogging on Friday.

It's the first time he's really tested out his left calf since he strained it last week. Beltre's injury could keep him from playing for his native Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, but he should be fine come Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. He's averaged 152 games played over the last five seasons, which is quite a feat especially since he'll turn 38 in April.

Adrian Beltre (calf) said Saturday that he has yet to rule himself out for the first round of the World Baseball Classic.

Beltre was diagnosed earlier in the week with a Grade 1 strain of his left calf which was expected to sideline him for 2-3 weeks. Reports on Friday had him very unlikely to play in the first round, with a chance that he could return for the rest of the tournament, but Beltre seems intent on playing for his country if he's physically able to.

Adrian Beltre could miss the World Baseball Classic after suffering a Grade 1 left calf strain on Tuesday.

He's expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, and Beltre wouldn't rule out playing for his native Dominican Republic in the WBC. However, he's obviously not going to push things and risk aggravating the ailment prior to Opening Day. Barring any setbacks, the injury should not affect his availability for the beginning of the season.
