Adrian Beltre suffered a strained left hamstring running the bases in the fifth inning of Friday’s game against the Blue Jays and will undergo an MRI on Saturday.
Beltre, who started at third base for the AL All-Star team last week, came up lame on Michael Young‘s double after he singled in a run to reach base in the fifth and was replaced by Omar Quintanilla. Presumably as a response to the injury, the Rangers immediately had Chris Davis pulled from Triple-A Round Rock’s game tonight. He’d almost surely be the callup if Beltre is forced to the disabled list.
Beltre has played in all 100 Rangers games this season, starting at third base in 93 of them. In his place, the Rangers can use Michael Young or Davis at third. Davis has been outstanding in the PCL this season, hitting .363/.401/.821 with 24 homers and 65 RBI in just 190 at-bats.
