Rangers signed 3B Adrian Beltre to a two-year, $36 million contract extension.

The deal will keep the 37-year-old slugger in Arlington through the 2018 season. He is showing no signs of slowing down offensively, slashing .310/.370/.571 with two homers and nine RBI through the first 11 games of the 2016 campaign.
Apr 15 - 8:53 PM

Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers and Adrian Beltre have reached an agreement on a two-year contract extension.

The deal would keep the veteran third baseman in Texas through the 2018 season. While financial terms were not disclosed, Beltre is expected to earn a raise over his current $16 million salary. A deal could be announced as early as Friday.
Apr 15 - 8:18 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and five RBI in Tuesday's 8-0 win over the Mariners.

Beltre's huge game began in the third inning, when he clocked a three-run home run off Mariners starter Wade Miley. He would add a two-run double in the seventh for RBIs No. 4 and No. 5 on the evening. The veteran third baseman has already hit five doubles and a pair of homers and we haven't even reached Tax Day yet. After four straight seasons of at least 25 home runs, he has failed to scratch out 20 in either of the past two seasons.

Adrian Beltre scorched the Angels on Saturday with a 3-for-4 night at the plate that featured two doubles and a home run.

Beltre may be 37 years old, but he remains one of the steadiest assets in fantasy baseball. He went 3-for-4 with three extra-base hits, including his first homer of the season. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he only had one RBI and one run scored, both on his solo shot. He's now hitting .304 and shows no signs of slowing down.
Apr 10 - 12:28 AM

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Rangers and Adrian Beltre have had, and will continue having, discussions about a contract extension.

Beltre was on the record saying that he didn't want to negotiate during the season, so the fact that he's keeping talks open likely means the two sides have made progress toward a deal. The 36-year-old slugger is as healthy as he's been in years and could be primed for yet another monster offensive effort in a contract year.
Apr 3 - 11:12 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-3 with a double and a three-run homer in Thursday’s win over the Reds.

It was his second home run of the spring. Beltre had an excellent second half last season despite playing through a torn thumb ligament, so it will be interesting to see what he will do now that he’s fully healthy. Of course, he turns 37 in April, so his health will continue to be in the back of fantasy owners’ minds.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

Beltre finished with four RBI in the game. The homer was his first of Cactus League action, but the veteran third baseman is now batting .500 with a 1.295 OPS. If he's looking to make a case for an extension from the Rangers, he's done a good job so far.
Mar 12 - 6:57 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports Adrian Beltre is looking for a three-year extension.

Beltre wants at least $19 million a year, which would match Pablo Sandoval's annual salary. The Rangers think that's a bit steep considering Beltre's age (he turns 37 next month). Beltre has hit .300 or better in four of his last six seasons and has always been a top notch defender at third base. There'll be plenty of teams interested if Beltre hits the market next offseason.
Mar 9 - 2:14 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-2 with an RBI single in his spring debut Friday against the Dodgers.

It was reported earlier this week that Beltre might not make his spring debut until at least Sunday in order to make sure that his legs were in game shape, so it’s safe to say that he’s feeling good. The veteran third baseman played through a torn ligament in his left thumb during the second half last season, but he finally got the issue taken care of back in October. He turns 37 in April and his power isn’t what it once was, but he’s still a top-10 third baseman in mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 4 - 6:24 PM

Adrian Beltre will wait until his legs are in better shape to make his Cactus League debut.

It doesn't sound like a big deal. "There are no limitations on me," said Beltre. "It’s spring training. It’s as simple as that." Beltre might not make his spring debut until Sunday or Monday, but he's not going to need many at-bats to be ready for the season.
Mar 2 - 2:36 PM

Adrian Beltre's agent, Scott Boras, indicated that he sees progress toward a possible extension with the Rangers.

"[The Rangers] want him there, and we're going to work on that," Boras said. And indeed, general manager Jon Daniels said earlier in February that they'll look into a contract extension for Beltre. Boras also believes it's possible that something could be completed prior to Opening Day, saying, "I'd say there are certainly grounds for a discussion of advancing Adrian's contract, yes." As to the on-field product, Beltre's 36 now and will turn 37 in early April. In 2015, he hit .287/.334/.453 with 18 homers and 83 RBI.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said he plans to engage Adrian Beltre early in camp about a possible contract extension.

Beltre is on record as being interested in such a discussion, and last month it was reported that the sides had talked about the idea, at least in passing. Beltre has been a staple at third base for the Rangers since signing a six-year deal with the club in 2011. He will turn 37 years old just days after the start of the season.
Feb 11 - 4:38 PM

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, Adrian Beltre is interested in signing a contract extension with the Rangers and there have at least been preliminary talks between the club and his agent, Scott Boras.

The 36-year-old is entering the final season of his six-year deal with the Rangers. He has progressed well in his rehab from a torn ligament in his left thumb and is to the point where he can do all baseball activities without any issues. The Rangers are already on record stating their desire to retain Beltre, so expect the two sides to come to an accord during the spring.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels said that the team would like to come to an extension with Adrian Beltre.

Beltre's entering the final year of his contract. In addition to telling reporters that the team's interested in an extension with the 36-year-old third baseman, Daniels also indicated that Beltre's rehab from a torn ligament in his left thumb is going well. He underwent surgery to repair the ligament in late October and is expected to be ready to roll when spring training kicks into gear.
