Adrian Beltre pulled with left hamstring strain

Jul 11, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

According to the Boston’s Globe’s Peter Abraham, Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre left Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays with what is currently being called a “left hamstring strain.”

No matter Sunday’s result, the Red Sox will limp into the All-Star break ranked third in the American League East behind the Rays and Yankees.  They’ve had a nice string of success recently, but it is incredible how many times the Sawx have been hit with major injuries this season.   Credit goes to the front office, and guys like Daniel Nava and Darnell McDonald, for the fact that Boston can still claim playoff hopes.

Victor Martinez is on the disabled list with a fracture in his left thumb, Dustin Pedroia is out another few weeks with a broken foot, Josh Beckett is still rehabbing a back injury and Clay Buchholz has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring strain.  In fact, 10 of the players on Boston’s 40-man roster are currently on the disabled list, including veteran catcher Jason Varitek and outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Jeremy Hermida.  It has all been a bit tiring to cover, honestly.

If Beltre is unable to return immediately after the All-Star break, the club may need to trade for infield help or dig deeper into the farm system.  Bill Hall slid over to third base when Beltre departed on Sunday and may need to start there when the 2010 baseball season resumes next week.

    Somebody in Boston’s front office must have spurned a gypsy.

    No one wants to hear a Red Sox fan cry, but this is amazing. At one point they had their fifth, sixth, and seventh outfielders starting a game. When Martinez and Varitek both went down, their top two minor league catchers were also injured. Hate to say it, but they will never catch the Rays and Yanks now.
