Rangers general manager Jon Daniels admitted that Adrian Beltre (thumb) is not 100 percent yet.

The club surprisingly activated Beltre from the disabled list on Tuesday, but the third baseman is still going to have to battle through some pain in his sprained left thumb. "It had improved last weekend in Chicago and he felt he had turned a corner," Daniels said. "It's going to hurt. It's not 100 percent. It's not totally pain-free. It's manageable and the medical staff says he won't hurt it by playing."

Beltre had the stitches removed from his left thumb earlier this week and is able to catch and throw, but gripping a bat is still an issue. "I’ve tried every day," Beltre said. "It’s not as close as I want it. I’m not happy, but what can I do, get a disposable thumb?" The Rangers had been hoping Beltre would be nearing a return at this point, but obviously he's not close.
