by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Beltre, now in his 18th season, became the 52nd player in MLB history to reach 400 homers. 

The blast was the backend of consecutive first-inning homers with Prince Fielder.


Rangers' Adrian Beltre denies any injury issues: 'I get paid to play'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"Just a bad reaction," Beltre said.

Beltre added that even if he wasn't healthy enough to play, he wouldn't ask out of the lineup.

"I get paid to play," Beltre said.

Beltre saw his RBI streak come to an end at four games on Thursday. He hit .294 (5 for 17) with a home run, four RBI an a walk during the series against the Royals. He is hitting .243/.281/.396 with four homers and 12 RBI in 35 games. He is one long ball shy of his 400th career home run.

Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre hits safely in 10 of last 12 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While Beltre has hit safely in 10 of his last 12 games, he is still not hitting for power. He has just one double, one home run and a .383 slugging percentage in that span. Beltre also has three RBI, five walks, six runs and one stolen base in his last 12 games.

The 36-year-old doesn't seem concerned, however. "I’ve been through this several times," he said, per the Star Telegram. "I’m confident. I’m confident in what I can do. I feel good. I’m healthy. It’s a six-month season, not a two-week season."

"I could get four hits today and three hits tomorrow, and then where am I?" he added. "All the worrying is just a waste of time."


Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre looking to break out


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has struggled at the plate early on in the season, hitting just .149 in 47 at-bats this season. Manager Jeff Banister thinks Beltre just keeps hitting the ball right at the defense, reports MLB.com.

"Adrian has barreled some baseballs and come up empty. I can recall four line-drive outs. Put those in the hit column and how does it look now," Banister said. "I've got to look at the track record of the guy, who he is and what he is telling me. I look at the at-bats. There have been some balls popped up but there have been some that have been barreled."


Adrian Beltre doubles and triples for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers' Adrian Beltre homers vs. A's Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre went 2 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 10-1 win over the A's Thursday.

Beltre, who scored two runs in the victory, had come into the game 0 for 11 but had put the ball into play during all his plate appearances. His bad luck finally shifted Thursday, as he singled in the fourth inning before slugging his home run in the seventh.

"Just trying to wait until the last second," Beltre said of snapping his hitless skid after the game, per MLB.com. "Just trying to make it interesting. I knew I was going to get one before the season was over. No panic there. It felt good. Truly felt good."

Beltre will look to build on his strong Thursday peformance against the Astros this weekend.


Rangers manager planning more rest days for starters


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Rangers manager Jeff Bannister is planning to give his starters more rest time this season, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wednesday, Bannister took outfielder Shin-Soo Choo out of the lineup to give Jake Smolinski the start and shuffled Adam Rosales in at third to move Adrian Beltre to DH and Mitch Moreland to the bench.

"You can't ask guys to sit on the bench for seven days and then expect them to be effective," Banister said. "But I also believe what you gain on the front end of the year proves worthy on the other side.

"Guys may have just been at spring training, but spring training is 40-plus days of grinding, too," he added. "This is a 183-day marathon. If there are ways we can help guys show up better and then get five, six, seven days of dynamic play from them, we're going to do that."

He is also not worried about Choo's defense.

"It has nothing to do with what I think of Shin-Soo Choo's defense," Banister said. "He missed time in spring with an elbow issue. He is coming off a lower body injury from last year. He had gone hard after a couple of balls earlier in the game and he was eight batters away from coming up again. It was an opportunity to get fresh legs and a fresh arm in there. I don't foresee it becoming a regular occurrence."

Rangers may pick up option on Adrian Beltre


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) Not wanting it to be a distraction during the season, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said it's possible the team will pick up Adrian Beltre's option for the 2016 season, reports the Fort-Worth Telegram.

Beltre would need 586 at-bats this season for the vesting option to kick in. In 2014, Beltre hit .324 with 19 home runs and 77 RBI in 549 at-bats.


Joey Gallo expanding horizons in outfield


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Rangers are experimenting in the Fall Instructional League with playing premier prospect Joey Gallo in the outfield. He has played third base, but his path to the majors has been blocked at that position by Texas star Adrian Beltre.

"Versatility is a plus," general manager Jon Daniels told the Dallas Morning News. "It gives both the club and the player options. Joey's a good athlete and, while we don't doubt he can play third, this is an easy way to give him additional paths to the big leagues."

Daniels added that he expects Gallo, who slugged 42 home runs this season at Class A and Double A combined, to open next season at third base.

"I'm not surprised," manager Ron Washington said, per MLB.com. "What he's doing is he's taking now what the pitchers give to him. … They throw him a slider down and away and he decides he wants it, he'll go ahead and punch it to right field. They throw him something up and in like he likes it, he'll go for the big one. They throw him something down in the middle, he'll keep it in the middle. That's what good hitters do when they find their groove."

Rangers to consider deals for 'core-type' players


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Rangers will consider what their "core-type" players will bring back in a trade, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Realistically, the leaves Elvis Andrus and Alex Rios are the most likely to be moved. The team could also see what Adrian Beltre will bring back in a potential deal. Both Andrus and Beltre are owed a significant amount of money going forward, and it's possible the team would have to cover some salary in deals for either player. General manager Jon Daniels said the team is in a position to make some deals, but hedged by saying "there is no rule you have to make a major change before the deadline."
