Adrian Beltre to have MRI, miss Yankees series

By C. Trent Rosecrans | Blogger


There hasn't been much in the way of bad news for the Texas Rangers this young season, but here's one bit of concern -- third baseman Adrian Beltre will undergo an MRI on his strained left hamstring on Monday and will likely miss the team's three-game series against the Yankees.

"I don't think it will be a big deal," Beltre told MLB.com on Sunday. "It will be a couple of days. I'll get an MRI tomorrow and go from there."

Beltre hurt his hamstring in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. He missed five weeks last season with a similar injury, but he said this time it felt different.

Beltre, 33, is hitting .304/.344/.482 with two homers in 14 games this season.
