Engel Beltre (leg) has been taking live batting practice at the Rangers' spring training complex and is close to being assigned to a minor league affiliate.

Engel Beltre underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair his fractured right tibia.

Beltre had a rod inserted into the leg for stabilizing and strengthening purposes. He'll miss at least two months and will probably head to Triple-A when he's healthy.
Apr 2 - 4:22 PM

Rangers placed OF Engel Beltre on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured right tibia.

Beltre suffered the injury earlier this week. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously he won't be an option for the Rangers for at least the first two months of the season.
Mar 28 - 8:44 AM

Engel Beltre was diagnosed Monday with a fractured right tibia and is out indefinitely.

It could be a lengthy rehab process. Beltre, 24, batted .292/.340/.398 with seven home runs and 15 stolen bases in 94 games last season at Triple-A Round Rock. He's not really considered a top prospect anymore.
Mar 24 - 12:30 PM

Engel Beltre was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to shin splints.

It's not clear when he'll be ready to return to action. Beltre is likely to begin the season at Triple-A.
Mar 6 - 9:13 PM

Rangers optioned OF Engel Beltre to Triple-A Round Rock.

The move cleared a roster spot for new utilityman Adam Rosales. Beltre could be back up in September.

Rangers recalled OF Engel Beltre from Triple-A Round Rock.

Texas lost Nelson Cruz to a 50-game PED suspension on Monday, so Beltre will help provide some needed outfield depth. The 23-year-old has some speed and some power and could take on value in AL-only fantasy formats if the Rangers find him enough playing time.

Rangers optioned OF Engel Beltre to Triple-A Round Rock.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Adam Rosales on the active roster. Beltre is hitting .300 (9-for-30) with a double and two RBI in 13 games with the Rangers this season.

Rangers recalled OF Engel Beltre from Triple-A Round Rock.

Beltre has batted .300/.360/.406 with four homers and 13 steals at Round Rock this season. He'll back up Leonys Martin in center field while Craig Gentry is sidelined.

Engel Beltre is nursing a strained muscle in the back of his left shoulder.

He has been examined by an orthopedist, who found no structural damage. Beltre could need more tests, though, and it's possible he'll have to pull out of playing for Spain in the World Baseball Classic.

Engel Beltre has been suspended indefinitely by the Texas League for his actions Tuesday night.

Beltre flung a trash can into the stands during a scuffle with fans in San Antonio, Texas after a home run was called back by umpires. The suspension could last for 10 days or longer. Beltre, 21, is batting .253/.286/.316 with zero homers, five RBI and three stolen bases in 18 games for Double-A Frisco this season.

Single-A Bakersfield’s Engel Beltre went 4-for-5 with a homer, a triple and five RBI on Friday.

Beltre, the outfield prospect the Rangers got from the Red Sox in the Eric Gagne deal, was a big disappointment last year, hitting .227/.281/.317 in 357 at-bats in the California League. He’s just 20, though, and he has plenty of tools. He does need to show more power this year, since he’s probably never going to be a big on-base guy.

Low Single-A Clinton's Engel Beltre had three hits on Wednesday, giving him 12 in his last five games.

His three hits came on a night in which his team as a whole had five. Beltre, part of the Eric Gagne deal with the Red Sox last year, is hitting .283/.308/.404 on the season. It's a fine line for an 18-year-old in full-season ball, but the fact that he has just seven walks in 339 at-bats is pretty ridiculous.

Engel Beltre went 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI for low Single-A Clinton on Sunday.

David Murphy and Kason Gabbard have already paid dividends, but Beltre has the most raw talent of the players the Rangers picked up from the Red Sox for Eric Gagne last summer. The 18-year-old is batting .295/.331/.446 in the Midwest League.
