Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's win over the Mariners.
He was Hisashi Iwakuma's nemesis in this one, taking him deep with a solo shot in the first inning and getting to him with an RBI double in the third. Beltran also added an infield single off of reliever Arquimedes Caminero. The veteran slugger went through a 32 at-bat hitless streak but has now picked up five base knocks in his last eight at-bats.

It's a regular day of rest. The Rangers have Adrian Beltre in the designated hitter spot and Jurickson Profar at third base.
Aug 28 - 12:24 PM

Carlos Beltran went 4-for-5 with three RBI, including two in the 10th inning to help the Rangers come back and beat the Athletics 5-4 on Tuesday.

Beltran had an RBI single in the sixth inning, but it was his single with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, with the Rangers trailing by two runs, that loomed the largest. The well-traveled veteran has made himself at home with the Rangers, batting .340 with two home runs, eight RBI and six runs scored since the August 1 trade from the Yankees. Beltran is hitting .308/.348/.545 with 24 homers, 72 RBI and 56 runs scored overall.
Aug 17 - 1:45 AM

Carlos Beltran is out of the Rangers' starting lineup on Thursday against the Rockies.

Beltran missed some games earlier this week with a quad contusion and will take a day of maintenance as the Rangers close out a series with Colorado. Adrian Beltre is at DH and Jurickson Profar is at third base.
Aug 11 - 12:11 PM

Carlos Beltran (quad) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

Beltran didn't start Sunday due to a quad contusion and was limited to pinch-hitting duties for Monday's game with the DH unavailable, but he's back in there on Tuesday in right field. Shin-Soo Choo and Jurickson Profar are both on the bench.
Aug 9 - 11:29 AM

Carlos Beltran (quad) is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

Beltran left Saturday's game with a quad contusion and was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Sunday. Now he's sitting with the DH unavailable under National League rules. The Rangers are hitting Cole Hamels eighth and Delino DeShields ninth against Tyler Anderson.
Aug 8 - 5:12 PM

Carlos Beltran (quad) appeared as a pinch hitter on Sunday, lining out in his lone at-bat against the Astros.

Beltran left Saturday's game with a left quad contusion and sat out on Sunday as a precautionary measure. He's considered day-to-day, but with Monday's game coming against the Rockies in Colorado, he'll need to be cleared to play the field in order to be in the lineup since they don't have the benefit of having the designated hitter.
Aug 7 - 11:12 PM

Carlos Beltran (quad) is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Beltran had to leave Saturday's game against the Astros with a left quad contusion. He's considered day-to-day. The Rangers have Shin-Soo Choo in the designated hitter spot, Nomar Mazara in right field and Delino DeShields in left.
Aug 7 - 11:59 AM

Carlos Beltran left Saturday's game against the Astros with a left quad contusion.

Beltran was having a great game before the injury, going 3-for-4 with a double and two singles. Nomar Mazara took over for Beltran in right field during the seventh inning. This injury shouldn't cost him more than a game or two.
Aug 6 - 10:11 PM

Carlos Beltran went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a Rangers' loss on Wednesday.

It was his first home run since joining the Rangers at the trade deadline and his 23rd of the season. The 39-year-old is having an excellent season, batting .300 with 65 RBI.
Aug 3 - 9:43 PM

Carlos Beltran will bat third and serve as the designated hitter in his Rangers debut Tuesday against the Orioles.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Lucroy will bat sixth in his debut. The Rangers' lineup is loaded following Monday's non-waiver trade deadline.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Orioles starter Dylan Bundy has struggled more with left-handed bats early in his career, making Beltran a viable GPP target at a mid-range price tag across the industry. Bundy owns just a 5.46 K/9 rate against LHs while possessing a 12.0 K/9 rate against RHs, and Beltran's upside is considerable given that Bundy has allowed a 1.38 HR/9 rate with a very low GB% (32.3). Beltran is sporting a .342 wOBA, .220 ISO and 33.7 hard% against RHP this season.
Aug 2 - 3:23 PM

Rangers acquired OF Carlos Beltran from the Yankees for RHPs Dillon Tate, Erik Swanson, and Nick Green.

Beltran also drew heavy interest from the Indians, Red Sox, and Astros, but the Yankees made the best offer. Tate was the fourth overall pick in last year's draft. Beltran is expected to see playing time between DH and the corner outfield spots in Texas. He might also play some first base. The 39-year-old was slashing .304/.344/.546 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI in 99 games this season for the Yankees and fits nicely into the heart of the Texas batting order.
Aug 1 - 4:33 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Rangers have acquired Carlos Beltran from the Yankees.

Rangers top pitching prospect Dillon Tate, the No. 4 overall pick from a year ago, is headed to New York along with right-handers Nick Green and Eric Swanson. That's a massive return for a veteran outfielder like Beltran, but the 39-year-old gives the Rangers a versatile switch-hitting option for their corner outfield, first base, and DH spots. Beltran, an impending free agent, was batting .304/.344/.546 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI in 99 games this season for the Yankees.
Aug 1 - 2:53 PM

According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the Carlos Beltran sweepstakes are down to the Indians and Rangers.

So the Red Sox and Astros are apparently out of the mix. Feinsand says the likelihood of a trade being completed before the 4:00 p.m. ET deadline is high. Beltran, a 39-year-old impending free agent, has batted .304/.344/.546 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI in 99 games this season for the Yankees.
Aug 1 - 2:42 PM

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Astros, Red Sox, Rangers and Indians are among the clubs that are still pursuing Carlos Beltran.

The Yankees have already dealt away Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman, leaving Beltran as their last major trade chip to be dealt. It seems likely that the switch-hitting outfielder will be wearing a new uniform next week. He has had a monster season at the plate, slashing .301/.342/.538 with 21 homers and 62 RBI.
