Adrian Beltre has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of his right calf.
Beltre opened the 2017 season on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain, and he was sent for an MRI after experiencing renewed tightness while trying to run on Saturday. The veteran third baseman is basically going to have to start over with his rehab, meaning we can safely rule him out for all of April. Joey Gallo has been filling in at third base for the Rangers and will continue to do so. Apr 11 - 10:27 PM

Adrian Beltre felt renewed tightness in his right calf Saturday while attempting to run.

That's the reason he has not been activated from the disabled list yet. Beltre underwent an MRI on Tuesday and the Rangers should have an update about the severity of the setback sometime Wednesday. Joey Gallo has been filling in at third base for Texas.
Apr 11 - 6:38 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) will not be activated from the disabled list ahead of Tuesday's game in Anaheim.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels made that revelation during a radio hit on Tuesday evening. Beltre has been taking batting practice and doing running drills for the last several days, but his right calf still isn't 100 percent. Joey Gallo will continue to fill in at third base for Texas.
Apr 11 - 5:23 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) was not activated from the disabled list as hoped on Sunday.

Beltre took batting practice Friday and has gone through some running drills, but he's not quite 100 percent yet. The Rangers haven't revealed when they expect to have their star third baseman back, but it's possible he'll be activated on Tuesday following Monday's off day.

Adrian Beltre (calf) took batting practice Friday.

Beltre is eligible to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday, but it's not a guarantee yet that he'll return at that time. The Rangers will wait and see how he feels Saturday and he'll surely have to test out his calf with some running first, as well. Joey Gallo has been filling in at third base.
Apr 7 - 5:44 PM

Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain.

It was looking that way when Beltre couldn't go Saturday in the Rangers' spring training finale versus Kansas City. He's been battling calf issues all spring, though a recent MRI ruled out any structural damage. Beltre has been fairly durable throughout his career but is at an age where seemingly minor injuries can linger. Joey Gallo will handle the hot corner in Beltre's absence.
Apr 1 - 4:55 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) could potentially begin the season on the 10-day disabled list.

Beltre had hoped to play in Saturday's exhibition game, but still wasn't quite ready. Unless he makes it through Saturday's workout saying he's 100% healthy, there's a chance that he'll begin the year with a backdated stint on the disabled list. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place in the event that the veteran third baseman isn't quite ready on Monday.
Apr 1 - 1:44 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup for Saturday's exhibition against the Royals.

Beltre has been hopeful that he would play in that game as a tune-up for Opening Day. Look for an update from the Rangers on his status on Saturday to see if he'll be good to go for Monday's opener.
Apr 1 - 11:52 AM

Adrian Beltre (calf) ran for the first time before Friday's exhibition game and is hopeful to play in Saturday's contest.

The Rangers will wait to see how his body responds to Friday's workout before making a decision. It looks as though the veteran third baseman should be ready to go for Opening Day.
Mar 31 - 6:18 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) will be re-evaluated over the weekend.

Beltre came down with some tightness in his right calf muscle on Monday, though an MRI showed it wasn't severe. While he initially expressed confidence about his readiness for Opening Day, he's running out of time to prove it. The disabled list could eventually be an option if he doesn't show enough progress this weekend.
Mar 29 - 2:47 PM

Adrian Beltre underwent an MRI on his right calf on Monday.

Fortunately, the test showed that it's not considered a significant strain. The Rangers are calling Beltre day-to-day for now, so while it's not ideal, the feeling is that he'll be ready for the season.
Mar 29 - 12:03 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) is not in Wednesday's lineup.

Beltre hasn't played since Sunday due to a tight right calf muscle, but he's not concerned about his readiness for Opening Day and Jeff Banister has also downplayed the situation. We'll have to take their word for it for now.
Mar 29 - 11:20 AM

Adrian Beltre (calf) is expected to throw and hit in the cages on Tuesday.

Beltre showed up Monday due to a tight right calf muscle and was held out of the lineup. He's still nursing some tightness, but the Rangers don't sound overly concerned. This hasn't been the smoothest spring for Beltre, as he dealt with a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in camp and has struggled at the plate between the World Baseball Classic and the Cactus League. Still, there's nothing to indicate he won't be ready for the regular season.
Mar 28 - 12:05 PM

Adrian Beltre is out of the Rangers' Cactus League lineup on Monday due to a tight right calf muscle.

Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in Rangers camp. This right calf injury is not considered as serious, but we are just one week from Opening Day. Look for another status update Tuesday.
Mar 27 - 11:36 AM

Adrian Beltre (calf) will play for Team Dominica in the first round of the World Baseball Classic.

Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in Rangers camp and had been on the fence about playing in the WBC, but he saw his first Cactus League action Friday and Saturday and came out of those two games feeling fine. The veteran third baseman told reporters Monday morning that he is not limited in any way by the calf injury.
