Rangers All-Star third baseman Adrian Beltre is on the 15-day disabled list due to a left quad injury, but he did not agree with the decision made by Ron Washington and other Rangers' brass.

Via star-telegram.com:

“I did not agree with this decision, but it was out of my hands,” Beltre said. “The medical staff and the front office thought it was best, but it was out of my hands. I had no say in that.”


"Obviously it was a different injury than I'm accustomed to -- the hamstring is what I normally deal with. I thought that I could manage it. It might be the smart idea, but I wasn't happy with the decision.”

Beltre mentioned that while, yes, he'd be playing in pain that he's used to that because he hasn't been 100 percent healthy "in about 50 years." He told reporters that he was planning on returning to the lineup Tuesday. Instead, he'll have to wait a few weeks.

Beltre, 35, is hitting .286/.394/.393 with three doubles and four RBI this season. The three-time All-Star is coming off a season in which he finished seventh in AL MVP voting.

Without Beltre in the lineup, Josh Wilson and Kevin Kouzmanoff are the starting options at third base.
