Adrian Beltre (ankle) said Saturday morning that he has "very high" confidence that he will be able to avoid the disabled list.

Beltre has been out since Tuesday with a left ankle sprain, but he went through a pregame workout on Friday and woke up Saturday feeling close to 100 percent. The veteran third baseman should return to the Rangers' starting lineup soon.
Jun 10 - 10:21 AM

Adrian Beltre (ankle) will avoid the disabled list for now.

The Rangers chose to send reliever Dario Alvarez down in order to activate Jurickson Profar, which means Beltre could potentially at least be available to pinch-hit this weekend. He sprained his left ankle on Tuesday.
Jun 9 - 5:25 PM

Adrian Beltre (ankle) will not play Friday but the Rangers haven't determined whether they'll place him on the disabled list.

Beltre will put his sprained left ankle through a workout Friday to see how he feels. It's possible the club could keep him around as a pinch-hitter through the weekend before possibly returning him to the lineup next week. Jurckison Profar will be recalled, but whether he replaces Beltre or someone else is yet to be determined.
Jun 9 - 5:00 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Adrian Beltre (ankle) could potentially land on the disabled list.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Rangers made it known that they did not plan on putting Beltre on the disabled list. However, according to Heyman, the veteran third baseman might be dealing with more than just a "day-to-day" situation, here, and could potentially need additional time to recuperate. Beltre initially sprained his left ankle against the Mets on Tuesday. Jurickson Profar is being called up for depth.
Jun 7 - 11:23 PM

The Rangers have no current plans to place Adrian Beltre (ankle) on the disabled list.

Beltre sprained his left ankle on Tuesday against the Mets. A subsequent X-ray came back negative and a check-in with Dr. Keith Meister confirmed the left ankle sprain, but nothing more serious. For the time being, the veteran third baseman should be considered day-to-day.
Jun 7 - 7:48 PM

Adrian Beltre (ankle) is not in the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday against the Mets.

That's no surprise after Beltre was spotted in a walking boot following Tuesday's game. He suffered a sprained left ankle while legging out a ball in the first inning of the Rangers' 10-8 victory. X-rays turned up negative, but it's possible the veteran third baseman will need a short stay on the disabled list. Joey Gallo is starting at the hot corner Wednesday. Ryan Rua is at first base.
Jun 7 - 3:44 PM

Adrian Beltre (ankle) was in a walking boot after Tuesday's game.

Beltre exited in the sixth inning after jamming his left ankle at first base in the bottom of the first. X-rays turned up negative, but the veteran third baseman admitted there is some concern. He'll get at least a couple days off and might be looking at another disabled list stint. Pete Kozma finished out Tuesday's victory over the Mets at third base.
Jun 7 - 12:04 AM

Adrian Beltre has been diagnosed with a jammed left ankle.

Beltre suffered the injury while stepping on the first base bag on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the first inning. He stayed in the game until the bottom of the sixth, when Pete Kozma replaced him as a pinch-runner following a two-out walk. Beltre might get a couple days off, but this doesn't sound like a serious issue.
Jun 6 - 10:37 PM

Adrian Beltre was removed from Tuesday's game against the Mets with an apparent injury.

Pete Kozma entered as a pinch-runner after Beltre drew a walk in the bottom of the sixth inning. Texas was up 10-4 at the time, so this might have been a precautionary move, but Beltre was spotted limping for much of the night. He made his 2017 debut on May 29 after missing the first seven weeks of the season due to a right calf strain.
Jun 6 - 10:32 PM

Adrian Beltre finished 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a walk in Saturday's game against the Astros.

Beltre, who missed the first 51 games due to a calf injury, is up to 2,950 hits for his career. Barring any long-term injuries he should reach the 3,000-hit plateau sometime this summer. He is slashing a robust .421/.478/.737 with a 1.215 OPS since his debut May 29, hitting safely in each of his five outings.
Jun 4 - 2:02 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and his first homer of the season in Friday’s loss to the Astros.

His ninth-inning blast against Ken Giles traveled 426 feet and was the only offense the Rangers could muster on the night. Beltre, who is now sitting on 446 career homers, is 6-for-15 (.400) in four games since coming off the disabled list.
Jun 3 - 1:21 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored against the Rays on Wednesday.

He lifted a sacrifice fly that plated Elvis Andrus in the first inning. He added an RBI single in the 10th inning but his team fell two runs short in their comeback attempt. This was his third game since being activated from the disabled list. He missed the first two months of the season with a calf injury. He is batting .333/.357/.500 through 14 plate appearances and should provide a nice boost to the Rangers' offense and defense moving forward.
Jun 1 - 12:55 AM

Adrian Beltre is hitting fourth as the designated hitter for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

Beltre had played third base in each of his first two games since being activated from the disabled list for his season debut on Monday. With Beltre DHing, Joey Gallo will man the hot corner and is hitting seventh.
May 31 - 4:06 PM

Rangers activated 3B Adrian Beltre from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll make his season debut Monday after missing almost a full two months with a strained right calf. Beltre originally suffered the injury back in mid-February and then aggravated it in March.
