Adrian Beltre 3B/DH TEX 1 Month

Beltre's option for 2016 was picked up by the Rangers on Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.

The Rangers amended Beltre's contract to extend him through 2016, as he had originally signed a six-year deal in with a sixth year vesting option. The vesting option would have required Beltre to reach 586 plate appearances, but Texas apparently decided he would be worth the $16 million in 2016 regardless of his availability in 2015. Joey Gallo, the team's presumed third baseman of the future, could debut with Texas as early as this season, but the team is so weak at designated hitter that finding room for both players will not be an issue.

Beltre went 2-for-4 with a walk-off home run Thursday against Oakland -- his first homer since Sept. 9.

Although Beltre has done a great job maintaining a high average (.326) this year, his power has faded significantly -- he has just 19 home runs, the fewest he's hit since his disastrous 2009 with Seattle. If he can hit out out over this final weekend, though, Beltre will notch his 12th career 20-homer season.

Beltre picked up four singles and two RBI in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Angels.

Batting just .209 (9-for-43) over his past 12 games, Beltre broke out of his recent slump with a 4-for-4 effort Friday night. Despite the Rangers' struggles as a team, the veteran third baseman is putting up another outstanding campaign as he is leading the team in most offensive categories.

In a tumultuous season for the Rangers, Beltre has remained their one constant. Beltre now owns a fabulous .322/.372/.512 slash line in 379 at-bats. In fact, his .884 OPS is tops in the major league among third basemen.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers have received calls on Adrian Beltre.

The Rangers consider Beltre and Yu Darvish virtually untouchable, so it's highly unlikely that those calls will lead to anything. The veteran third baseman is owed $18 million next season while his contract includes a $16 million vesting option for 2016.

It was his 10th home run of the season. Beltre's rough start to the season is but a distant memory. While he was hitting .224 on the morning of May 4, he's now sitting at .336 for the year. That's what hitting .366 for two whole months will do for you.
