ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is out of the lineup a day after the active career hits leader re-aggravated the left hamstring injury that already has put him on the disabled list twice this season.
Manager Jeff Banister said before Tuesday's game against Arizona that Beltre would get a couple of days down before getting another evaluation. Texas has a day off before starting a four-game series at home Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels.
Beltre got hurt when scoring from second base in the eighth inning of a 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday night. The 39-year-old Beltre, who has 3,137 career hits, came home on a bloop single to left-center. He appeared to pull up a bit after rounding third base.
