Rangers All-Star Beltre back on DL with hamstring strain

16 May 2018 00:48

Adrian Beltre's return from the disabled list was short-lived after the Texas Rangers star succumbed to another hamstring injury.

The Rangers (16-26) activated Beltre from the 10-day disabled list ahead of May 8's game against the Detroit Tigers after he missed two weeks with a left hamstring strain.

Beltre re-aggravated the injury during Sunday's loss to MLB World Series champions the Houston Astros and was placed back on the disabled list on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old exited in the seventh inning after recording his third error in five games since being activated. 

"Rough, because I didn't feel any setback. I didn't feel the hamstring at all," Beltre said. "I was trying to protect it the whole time, because I knew it would take me a little longer. Tried not to run hard any play. … Disappointed, obviously, but nothing I can do now.

Beltre – a Gold Glove third baseman – fielded a grounder but tried to beat Astros runner Yuli Gurriel to third base for a force out instead of throwing to first. He lost the race and came away from the play with an obvious limp.

"Obviously, when you aggravate a previous injury [it's frustrating]" Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "With Adrian, he has been in these situations before. He manages them well."

The four-time All-Star and Silver Slugger went one for two at the plate before the injury and is batting .314 this season in 29 games.
