Beltre went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and a double during Monday's loss to Cleveland. The veteran has settled right back into the heart of the Texas lineup and made an immediate impact. Beltre owns a .294/.367/.529 slash line with four homers, 21 RBI and 11 runs through just 98 plate appearances. He projects to remain a rock-solid option at the hot corner moving forward.
Beltre went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Yankees. Beltre's first-inning blast led the long-ball parade against Yankees starter Michael Pineda, who was chased after four innings upon serving up three home runs. After missing most of the first two months of the season with a calf injury, Beltre has shown few signs of rust since returning to action in late May. His .843 OPS through 22 games this season is roughly in line with his career mark.
Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs during Thursday's win over Toronto. Beltre is already up to 16 RBI through just 19 games since returning from the disabled list in late May. The veteran sports a .290/.370/.464 slash line and has settled right back into the heart of the potent Texas lineup. It's not out of the question to expect him to begin building on his two homers in short order, either.
Beltre went 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two RBI against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. The long ball was just his second in 17 games this season, as Beltre's been a bit slow to regain his power stroke, but it was a warning shot to the rest of the league -- a 417-foot bomb to dead center. Beltre's hitting about the quietest .295 in the league, and fantasy owners looking to him for both average and power numbers should be rewarded as the season wears on.
Beltre went 1-for-4 with a double, walk and three RBI in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays. Beltre cleared the bases with a go-ahead two-bagger in the fourth inning, but the Rangers bullpen was unable to preserve the lead, as closer Matt Bush imploded in the ninth to hand the Blue Jays the win in the series opener. With a .431 slugging percentage -- his worst mark since 2009 -- the 38-year-old hasn't regularly provided the power out of the cleanup spot the Rangers were banking on when he came off the disabled list in late May, but Beltre's .382 on-base percentage will keep him locked into the heart of the lineup.
