Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre made an early exit from the first half of Saturday’s day-night doubleheader against the Tigers after suffering a strained left hamstring while running the bases.

The Rangers seem confident that Beltre will avoid the disabled list, but the 33-year-old missed five weeks last season because of hamstring issues and so the Texas medical staff is going to play it safe.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Beltre is scheduled to have an MRI on the hamstring Monday to determine the exact severity of the strain. Alberto Gonzalez is starting at third base on Sunday afternoon and Michael Young is likely to see action at the hot corner as well over the next couple of games.

Beltre has posted a .304/.344/.482 slash line, two homers and seven RBI in 61 plate appearances this year.
