Adrian Beltre‘s stained calf was initially believed to be a minor malady, but now Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com reports that he’ll miss 10-14 days with what has been classified as a Grade 1 strain.

He’s been shut down from all baseball activities until at least next week and will miss the first batch of exhibition games, but the good news is that an MRI exam showed no major structural damage and, according to Durrett, “the club does not expect this to hinder his ability to be ready for Opening Day.”

Michael Young is currently away from Rangers camp for a few days because of a personal issue, but he should be in line for plenty of reps at third base once he returns and … well, based on all the drama surrounding Young and the Rangers that should be fun.

    The only time I win money in Vegas is betting baseball at a sports book. Of course, they take it right back in beer, but hey…

    Anyway, these guys aren’t dummies, and even though baseball dollar volume is way under football, they still expect to win money.

    So Aaron, please save this post and let’s look at it again Oct 1.

      Ok, way too early out here. This was meant to go on the over/under post. Must be all this snow in NorCal. Sorry guys.

        No, something’s wrong. You’re not the only guy with his post going on the wrong spot. See the Wainwright blog.
