Adrian Beltre feels improvement in his strained left hamstring, but isn't sure if he'll be in the lineup Monday.

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's as expected, as Beltre was projected to sit out all weekend with a strained left hamstring. The third baseman is known for playing through injuries and is reportedly making progress, but the Rangers might have to make a potential DL decision on Monday if he's not ready to play then. Jurickson Profar is handling third base.

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is not in the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

He's still nursing a strained hamstring. Jurickson Profar will grab another start at third while hitting leadoff against M's left-hander James Paxton. So far the Rangers have opted not to place Beltre on the disabled list but that could change if his condition doesn't improve quickly. Beltre did partake in Saturday's batting practice, so maybe he's not that far off.
Jun 11 - 6:23 PM

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) admitted Friday that he's unlikely to play at all this weekend.

The Rangers have yet to decide on whether his hamstring injury will necessitate a trip to the disabled list, but if his absence looks like it will extend into next week then that seems the logical conclusion. Jurickson Profar is once again starting in his place at the hot corner on Friday.
Jun 10 - 8:39 PM

Adrian Beltre's MRI revealed a strained left hamstring.

The strain is considered mild and Beltre is expected to avoid the disabled list. Beltre even campaigned to be a pinch-hitter Thursday against the Astros but manager Jeff Banister wasn't hearing it. Jurickson Profar started at third base Thursday and could see more time there if Beltre remains sidelined. For now, consider Beltre day-to-day.
Jun 9 - 6:26 PM

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon.

Beltre made an early exit on Wednesday night after experiencing discomfort in his left hamstring. If it turns out to be a hamstring strain, he could be headed to the 15-day disabled list. Jurickson Profar is starting at third base and batting leadoff for Texas on Thursday against Astros right-hander Collin McHugh.
Jun 9 - 11:12 AM

Adrian Beltre left Wednesday's game against the Astros due to a sore left hamstring.

Beltre suffered the hamstring injury while running from first base to second base ahead of a Prince Fielder single. He could be facing a trip to the 15-day disabled list, but more will be known after the Rangers reevaluate their veteran slugger on Thursday.
Jun 8 - 11:00 PM

Adrian Beltre was lifted for a pinch-running Jurickson Profar after appearing to grab his left hamstring.

Beltre was running to second following a Prince Fielder single, but after feeling something in his left leg, he returned to the dugout to be replaced by Profar. If this is a hamstring injury, a trip to the disabled list becomes a very real possibility. Beltre had been putting together a strong season entering Wednesday's game.
Jun 8 - 10:46 PM

Adrian Beltre homered, doubled, and knocked in five runs in Friday’s 7-3 win over the Mariners.

Beltre connected for a three-run homer off Taijuan Walker in the first inning before plating two runs with a double in the third. The five RBI tied a season-high. The veteran slugger is batting .419 (13-for-31) over his last eight games. With 10 homers and 40 RBI through 53 games, he has a good chance for his most productive season since 2013 in both categories if he can stay healthy.

He then crushed a first pitch fastball from Justin Wilson deep into the seats in left field in the seventh inning, putting the game out of reach.
