Adrian Beltre went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and three runs scored to lead the Rangers past the Mariners 7-4 on Sunday.
Beltre was in the middle of the action Sunday, scoring in the second, fourth and eighth innings to help the Rangers avoid a sweep. He's now got 10 runs on the year, and the two-hit game brought his line up to .300/.366/.425. The power hasn't come yet, but the 39-year-old remains a productive player regardless. Apr 22 - 7:10 PM

Adrian Beltre reached base in three of his four plate appearances Wednesday in the Rangers’ loss to Tampa Bay.

He walked once and singled twice while scoring the Rangers’ second run of the afternoon on Drew Robinson’s RBI single in the ninth inning. Even with Texas off to a rough start, Beltre is still doing Beltre things, hitting .300 with five doubles in the early going. He ranks 23rd on MLB’s all-time list with 3,069 career hits.

Adrian Beltre is not in the Rangers' lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Just a regular day off -- perhaps a birthday present from Rangers manager Jeff Banister -- for the 39-year-old. Jurickson Profar is playing third base in his stead. Beltre is hitting .303/.343/.424 on the young season.

Adrian Beltre was hitless across four at-bats in Wednesday's 6-2 loss at Oakland.

Beltre took the collar to slip to .192, and he is hitless in three of his past four outings with no extra-base hits or RBI. While he is getting a little long in the tooth, you simply need to look to 2015 for hope if you're one of his fantasy owners. He has been a slow starter, and he was hitting just .205 with one homer and two RBI in the first month in April 2015. He still ended up with 18 homers and 83 RBI that season. In other words, don't panic, as Beltre always seems to come around as the weather warms.
Apr 5 - 2:04 AM

Adrian Beltre finished 2-for-2 with a double in the Rangers' 5-4 Cactus League defeat of the Giants on Monday.

It was the first live game of the spring for Beltre, but you wouldn't know it given how locked in he appeared in his pair of at-bats. The veteran third baseman was highly productive last year when healthy, slashing .312/.383/.532 with 17 home runs and 71 RBI in 94 games.
Mar 5 - 5:49 PM

Adrian Beltre indicated Monday that he's open-minded to spending more time at designated hitter in 2018.

Shin Soo Choo is projected to be the Rangers' primary designated hitter this season, but the goal is to give Beltre more time there in order to stay fresh. "I had a talk with JD, and he let me know he would like me to DH more," said Beltre. "It depends how it goes. If I feel great, I don’t need to DH, but if I need a day or two to give my legs a breather, I will DH. I want to go in the lineup as much as I can." Beltre -- who turns 39 in April -- saw 28 starts out of the DH spot last season, most of them while protecting a hamstring injury down the stretch.
Feb 20 - 10:37 AM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team is "designed" for Adrian Beltre to be their third baseman in 2018.

Beltre was only able to play in 94 games in 2017 -- the lowest of his career -- but he showed no signs of slowing down when healthy, with 17 homers and a .915 OPS ranking among the best of third baseman in baseball. The Rangers will almost assuredly get trade offers for the 38-year-old despite his $18 million salary, but it sounds like Texas plans on bringing back the future Hall Of Famer for at least one more season.

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is back in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Beltre hasn't started since Tuesday as he battles a nagging hamstring injury, but he's back in there Sunday so Rangers fans can see him one final time this season. He's in the designated hitter spot against Daniel Mengden and the A's.

Adrian Beltre is out of the Rangers' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Beltre drew his first start at third base since August 31 on Tuesday night, but the Rangers have now officially been eliminated from the American League Wild Card race and will ease up on the 38-year-old's usage. He might not see any more playing time the rest of the way. Drew Robinson is at third base, Joey Gallo is at first base, and Willie Calhoun is in left field Wednesday versus Houston.

Adrian Beltre is starting at third base and batting fifth Tuesday against the Astros.

It will be Beltre's first start at the hot corner since August 31, when he suffered a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring. Joey Gallo is sitting versus Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel. Nomar Mazara will DH.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 04:43:00 PM

Adrian Beltre finished 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Rangers' loss to the Astros on Monday.

Beltre hit an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning, but that was the last significant moment for the Rangers' offense in what turned into an 11-2 rout for the American League West-champion Astros. Beltre is sporting a terrific .313/.384/.536 batting line in his age-38 campaign.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a homer as the Rangers topped the Mariners 4-2 on Thursday night in Seattle.

Beltre's solo shot off of Dan Altavilla in the sixth inning increased the Rangers' lead to 3-0 and would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. With his two-hit attack, he's now slashing a robust .314/.386/.543 with 17 homers and 70 RBI in just 88 games this season.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI on Sunday, leading the Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Angels.

Beltre delivered a two-run double off of Garrett Richards in the first inning, giving the Rangers an early lead which they wouldn't relinquish. The veteran third baseman is enjoying another terrific season, slashing .310/.384/.539 with 16 homers and 69 RBI.

Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is at DH and batting cleanup Thursday versus the Mariners.

Beltre still can't play defense, but his left hamstring is apparently good enough for hitting and light baserunning. This will be his first start since August 31.
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 03:59:00 PM

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

Beltre isn't fully recovered from his Grade 2 left hamstring strain and there's a chance he won't see another start for the Rangers in 2017, but MLB rosters have expanded so the club went ahead and activated the veteran third baseman anyway. Joey Gallo is playing the hot corner on Tuesday night against the Mariners.
