    Player Outlook

    Players in their mid-to-late 30s could be vulnerable to decline in any given year, but sometimes we can overestimate the risk. Adrian Beltre is one of those players who could come at a steep, but undeserved, discount because of his age. Owners may focus on Beltre's slow start to 2015 or his lack of power in the middle portion of the season. However, he bounced back from both of those slumps, the latter of which could have been related to a thumb injury. In the second half, Beltre looked like his old self, batting .318 with 11 home runs. Discount him a bit for his impending 37th birthday, if you must, but Beltre still deserves to be drafted as a top eight third baseman.

    • Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Undergoes thumb surgery
      By RotoWire Staff

      Beltre recently underwent thumb surgery to repair a torn ligament and is expected to be ready for spring training, the team's web site reports. Beltre originally hurt the thumb in late May and played through the injury for the remainder of the year. A scorching hot September saved what was shaping up to be a very disappointing season, and injuries no doubt played some role in that.

    • Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre played with a torn thumb ligament for most of the second half of the season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Beltre hit the disabled list in June with a sprained left thumb, but was able to return and still hit .318 in the season's second half. It's unclear at this point if the ailment will require offseason surgery, but the 36-year-old should be good to go for the start of the 2016 season.

    • Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre starting Game 5
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rangers hot-hitting third baseman Adrian Beltre (back) is in the lineup Wednesday for Game 5 against the Blue Jays. Beltre has been dealing with a back issue throughout much of the American League Division Series, but he was able to play through the injury in Game 4. In a win-or-go-home situation, Beltre will once again take over at third base and bat cleanup.

    • Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Returns to lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Beltre (back) was a late addition to Monday's Game 4 lineup against the Blue Jays, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Beltre was not listed in manager Jeff Banister's original lineup after missing Games 2 and 3 as a result of back tightness he suffered in Game 1, but improved enough to be slotted back in. He'll man third base and bat third against R.A. Dickey.

    • Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Out for Game 4
      By RotoWire Staff

      Beltre (back) remains out of the lineup for Game 4 on Monday against the Blue Jays. Beltre continues to deal with a back issue, and it's uncertain if he will be able to return at some point during the postseason. The Rangers still hold a 2-1 series lead over the Blue Jays, so it's possible the club is saving him until necessary, but Hanser Alberto will once again replace him at third base, batting ninth.
