Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with his 17th home run in the Rangers' 6-2 win over the Astros on Sunday.

Beltre hit a solo home run off Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in the sixth inning. Beltre has hits in seven of his nine games in August, raising his average to .320 with a .880 OPS overall. He continues to be among the American League leaders in batting average, slugging percentage and OPS on a poor Rangers squad.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers have received calls on Adrian Beltre.

The Rangers consider Beltre and Yu Darvish virtually untouchable, so it's highly unlikely that those calls will lead to anything. The veteran third baseman is owed $18 million next season while his contract includes a $16 million vesting option for 2016.

Adrian Beltre belted his 15th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Athletics on Sunday.

Beltre finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a walk. He tagged Evan Scribner with a solo shot in the eighth inning, pulling the Rangers to within 9-3. He has been outstanding at the plate again this season, slashing .324/.369/.519 with 15 homers and 55 RBI.
Jul 27 - 10:35 PM

Adrian Beltre smacked a solo homer and drew a walk Friday against the Blue Jays.

Beltre now has five homers in his last 11 games and 14 on the year. The 35-year-old has been one of the game's best hitters since a slow April and is unquestionably the top option at third base in mixed leagues.
Jul 18 - 10:17 PM

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Rangers were trampled by the Angels on Thursday.

Beltre hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, but by then, it was too little, too late as the Rangers still trailed 13-4. Beltre has been nearly unstoppable at the plate, as the veteran has 13 home runs, 50 RBI, and a sterling .341/.385/.545 slash line.
Jul 10 - 11:32 PM

Adrian Beltre was 2-for-5 with a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Mets.

It was his 10th home run of the season. Beltre's rough start to the season is but a distant memory. While he was hitting .224 on the morning of May 4, he's now sitting at .336 for the year. That's what hitting .366 for two whole months will do for you.
Jul 5 - 12:49 AM

Adrian Beltre knocked in two with a double, one of the two hits he had in four at-bats in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Beltre doubled in the two runs and later scored as part of a three-run third inning that sent the Rangers up 4-0, but the Orioles would stage a late-game comeback. The 35-year-old third baseman is having another fantastic season, slashing .335/.381/.508 with nine home runs and 44 RBI.
Jul 3 - 12:04 AM

Adrian Beltre went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer against the Twins in Friday's 5-4 win.

The first inning home run off Kevin Correia was Beltre's ninth of the season. In a season filled with injuries for the reeling Rangers, Beltre has been a rock in the lineup. Even at age 35, he's still slashing .325/.369/.502 with forty-one RBI as we near July. So long as he remains healthy, he should continue to put up numbers.
Jun 27 - 11:30 PM

Adrian Beltre went a perfect 4-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Beltre was basically the entire Rangers offense on the evening -- he had four of the nine hits, and he drove in one of the team's two runs. That run came on a single in the third inning, as all four hits were of the one-base variety. He's got eight hits in his last 16 at-bats to raise his season line to .321/.363/.488.
Jun 25 - 12:21 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double as the Rangers defeated the Marlins 6-0 on Wednesday.

It's Beltre's fifth consecutive two-hit game and his eighth multi-hit game in 10 June games. The 35-year-old third baseman continues to hit, slashing .323/.372/.507 with eight home runs and 29 RBI.
Jun 11 - 11:22 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a loss to the Indians on Sunday.

Multi-hit games are becoming the standard for Beltre, as Sunday's was his fifth in his last six games. He's also scored in each of those five games. The fantastic stretch is just the latest development in another terrific year for the 35-year-old, who's hitting .314/.366/.505 on the year.
Jun 8 - 8:07 PM

Adrian Beltre hit a pair of homers off the Orioles' Bud Norris to drive in all five Rangers runs in Wednesday's loss.

Beltre has three homers in two games and eight on the season. He hasn't gotten that RBI boost from batting behind Shin-Soo Choo and Prince Fielder that we expected, but he's still as good of a bet going forward as any third baseman besides Miguel Cabrera.
Jun 5 - 12:47 AM

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

The home run off Ubaldo Jimenez was his sixth of the season and his first since May 24. The 35-year-old continues to show no signs of aging, as he's now batting .302/.362/.467 on the season.
Jun 3 - 11:30 PM

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Nationals.

He was one of the few Rangers hitters who had any type of good swing against opposing hurler Stephen Strasburg. He continues to be an extremely productive bat in the middle of the Rangers lineup, hitting .302/.362/.459 with five homers and 20 RBI in his first 159 at-bats.
