UPDATE: According to Jon Heyman of, Adrian Beltre took his physical with the Rangers earlier today. The contract will be officially announced during a press conference tomorrow.

9:41 PM: It’s almost a done deal.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Adrian Beltre will be in Texas tonight in order to undergo a physical tomorrow.

Let’s hope the doctor doesn’t touch his head. He hates that.

As reported by Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports and T.R. Sullivan of, a physical is expected to be the final step before his new contract with the Rangers is made official. An announcement could be made as soon as tomorrow night.

As we learned earlier today, Beltre could reportedly earn as much as $96 million over six years with Texas, though the final year of the deal could be voided if he doesn’t reach a specific number of plate appearances.

    Wow…what doctor works that late? Was it a mystery doctor?

      T.R. Sullivan has since reported that he was there this afternoon.

        Damn…now my smartass comment doesn’t make sense—not that it really did to begin with, but still…

    Did the doctor rub his head?
    That’s what I want to know.
