Beltre is not in the lineup versus Oakland on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre will remain on the bench for a second straight contest, and fifth time in the past six games after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain last week. In his absence, Jurickson Profar will continue to man third base, though Beltre is limited to designated hitting duties at the moment. Due to the continued hot play of Shin-Soo Choo, it's not terribly surprising to see manager Jeff Banister keep him in the lineup and roll with an outfield of Nomar Mazara, Drew Robinson and Joey Gallo instead of inserting Beltre into the fold.

Beltre is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre is still recovering from a left hamstring strain, but the injury won't prevent the Rangers from mixing him into the lineup at designated hitter until he's ready to return to his normal duties at third base. Even so, Beltre may not be guaranteed full-time at-bats while he nurses the injury, as the Rangers often prefer to use the defensively-challenged Shin-Soo Choo at the DH spot, as will be the case Sunday.

Beltre served as the designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 11-7 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre surprisingly was available after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain earlier in the week. He will serve as the DH for the foreseeable future, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. He'll likely be deployed as a part-time player, even as DH. "He's probably relegated to [DH] for a time," manager Jeff Banister said. "But hopefully, we can give everybody a day. Hopefully, we can manage the outfield-DH situation pretty easily." Primary DH Shin-Soo Choo can play the field on occasion to spell Nomar Mazara or Joey Gallo.

Beltre (hamstring) is back in the lineup as the Rangers' designated hitter Saturday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre exited Monday's game against the Diamondbacks with a left hamstring strain and sat out the next three games. He's back Saturday, at least as a hitter, suggesting that he won't need to head to the disabled list, though it's unclear when he'll resume work in the field.

Beltre (hamstring) is not in the lineup against the Angels on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre will remain sidelined for a third straight game after suffering a Grade 2 left hamstring strain during Monday's contest. Though he previously spent a couple weeks on the DL due to a similar issue earlier this year, Beltre said that his hamstring feels much better this time around. That said, the Rangers may still elect to place him on the shelf in the coming days. Consider him day-to-day for the time being as Jurickson Profar gets another start at the hot corner.

Beltre said he's dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, Levi Weaver of The Athletic Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre dealt with a similar strain earlier in the year, spending two weeks on the disabled list as a result. That said, the veteran infielder claims he feels much better physically this time around, so the team may opt to wait and see how he feels in the coming days before making a decision regarding the disabled list. Jurickson Profar figures to fill in at third base for as long as Beltre is sidelined.

Beltre (hamsting) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre's hamstring is still bothering him after aggravating it during Monday's game. It's still unclear if the issue will force Beltre onto the disabled list, but it's worth noting that the veteran third baseman has already been to the disabled list twice this season due to his balky hamstring. Jurickson Profar is starting at third base in his stead Thursday.

The Rangers will wait until at least Thursday to provide an update on Beltre's injured hamstring, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre, who injured his hamstring during Monday's game, was held out Tuesday and gets an off-day Wednesday before the team makes a decision on his roster status. This will be the third bout of hamstring soreness that Beltre's experienced in 2018, the previous two landing him on the disabled list. Jurickson Profar is filling in at third base until Beltre is ready to return.

Beltre (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Beltre left Monday's game with a hamstring injury and will miss at least one more. He has an MRI scheduled for Tuesday, the results of which have not yet been released. It's currently unknown how long he'll be out, but there are reasons to be pessimistic, as he's already made two trips to the disabled list with hamstring injuries so far this season. Jurickson Profar will start in his place Tuesday and could be in line for an everyday role should Beltre miss an extended period of time.

Beltre is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday after suffering a left hamstring injury during the Rangers' 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers will receive a verdict on the extent of Beltre's injury once the MRI results are read, but it seems more likely than not that the third baseman will hit the disabled list for the third time this season. Both of his previous absences were due to issues with the same hamstring, with Beltre missing 12 games for his first DL stint and 16 games for the second stint. Should Beltre get shut down again, Jurickson Profar would likely step in as the Rangers' primary option at the hot corner.
