Carlos Beltran slugged a two-run homer and drew a bases-loaded walk Friday against the Astros.

Beltran recently found himself in a miserable 0-for-32 funk, but he’s now 9-for-21 (.429) with two home runs, a double, and five RBI over his last five games. Just in case there was any doubt, he’s going to be just fine.

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.

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.

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

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. 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.
