Beltre went 1-for-3 with a walk in Friday's 6-0 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger was the only hitter in the Rangers lineup to get on base twice on an afternoon where Kyle Hendricks stymied their offense. Beltre now has a modest four-game hitting streak, and is slashing a solid .282/.339/.442 line on the season while tying Ian Desmond for the team lead with 55 RBI.

Beltre went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday at the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre's 12th blast of the season gave the Rangers a 7-2 lead in the eighth inning, although they'd end up blowing the lead in the ninth inning to lose the contest. He's now hit safely in eight straight games, and he's slashing .284/.333/.464.

Beltre went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 7-1 win at Yankee Stadium.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre has caught fire over the past seven games, hitting safely and scoring in all of them while also driving in nine. The 37-year-old third baseman continues to defy father time with an impressive .285/.334/.456 line.

Beltre went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run against the A's on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He sat out seven games to a hamstring strain, but Beltre didn't miss a beat in his return. At 37 years old, Beltre's clearly declined from the superstar he once was into a merely competent, above-average hitter, but that's still good for plenty of value to his fantasy owners. He also has some room to raise his unluckily low .273 BABIP, so good times are likely ahead for Beltre owners, assuming he can stay on the field.

Beltre (hamstring) is in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Athletics, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre was expected to return to the lineup Thursday, albeit at less than 100 percent because his hamstring is still bothering him. This makes him a bit riskier as a daily pick, but he has shown decent productivity upon returning before fully recovered before. Beltre will get the start at third and bat fourth for the Rangers.

Beltre (hamsting) will be at less than 100 percent upon his return to the lineup Thursday, T.R Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre's made a habit of coming back at less than full strength from a variety of leg/back ailments in the past, and while he's look awkward at times on the bases in doing so he's generally been a productive player upon his return.

Beltre (hamstring) will return to the lineup and start at third base Thursday in Oakland, MLB.com's TR Sullivan reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will miss his seventh game in a row Wednesday, but he will return Thursday without needing a DL stint. Beltre continues to defy Father Time to some degree, although he is on pace to post an OPS below .800 for the second straight year. The 37-year-old is still a starting third baseman in most formats, but he's no longer an elite option at the position.

Beltre (hamstring) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the A's, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the seventh straight game missed for Beltre, but the news shouldn't come as much of a surprise as manager Jeff Banister had previously indicated the 37-year-old would be rested until Thursday. Jurickson Profar will see another start at third base in his stead Wednesday, hitting fifth against Oakland starter Sonny Gray.

Beltre (hamstring) will be rested until Thursday, although he took part in pregame warmups Monday before the decision was made. Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre reportedly told Manager Jeff Banister that he could play Monday in Oakland but instead was benched for the fifth straight game. This is likely a precautionary move on Banister's part and it appears a DL stint will continue to be avoided at this point. Jurickson Profar should continue getting the starts at third base until Beltre's return.

Beltre (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

It will mark Beltre's fourth straight absence, but the Rangers aren't inclined to move him to the DL just yet. That could happen, however, if Beltre fails to make much progress early in the week, making him a dicey fantasy option in weekly formats. Jurickson Profar is set to receive the lion's share of starts at third base until Beltre is cleared to return.
