Adrian Beltre (3B)

Texas Rangers - 100% owned

(?)
Bats: R, Throws: R

He has struggled all year but in Wednesday's loss to The Diamondbacks he went 2-for-3 with 1 home run, 1 RBI and a walk. He is now hitting; .183/.246/.596 with 2 home runs, 2 RBI and 1 stolen base.

Fantasy Impact: You could argue that this was Beltre's best game of the year and you wouldn't be wrong. There hasn't been a lot of success for him in this young season but it looks like he is turning a corner. We must remember that he is Adrian Beltre and he will more than likely have a great season. It is not time to sell him now.

Beltre picked up a hit on Tuesday but he is hitting; .158/.213/.494 with 1 home run,1 RBI and 1 stolen base on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The Rangers offense counts on Beltre's production to keep it going but so far this season he hasn't been himself. He hasn't been able to get anything going and it may look like the is the end of his fantasy dominance. It is surely not, players will go through hot and cold streaks and Beltre has the misfortune of having his slump at the beginning of the year. His value is the lowest it will ever be and it is a great time to buy in.

Beltre went hit less in the first 3 games to open the season but broke through in Thursday's blowout win against the Athletics, collecting 2 hits. 1 of his hits was a home run.

Fantasy Impact: It was only a matter of time before this happened. He singled in the 4th and homered in 7th. His homer was a thing of beauty, and we are hoping this is a sign that his bat is coming to life. He remains a buy low candidate but he will go on another hot streak before long. Expect more games like this.

Adrian Beltre went hit-less once again in Thursday's game, dropping his Spring line to; .129/.250/.508 with 1 homer run and 3 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: We have already talked about Beltre's Spring struggles, but since then we have seen no improvement. Beltre has proven throughout his career that he can overcome slumps in a huge way, and this slump will be another chance to do just that. He is not in jeopardy of losing his starting role, so this should be taken as a buy low opportunity. On April 6th his stat sheet will be wiped clean, there is no need to worry.

He has only 3 hits in 15 at bats this Spring. After being held hit-less in 2 at bats in Saturday's game against The Padres, his average falls to .200.

Fantasy Impact: If this was another player, there could be something to worry about, but Beltre will be just fine. His numbers are far from what we have seen in the past but it is a small sample size and there is still more time to get into a groove. He has already been slipping in drafts and this may cause him to slip even more. He will have another Beltre-like season.

Fantasy Impact: Any time contract issues can be solved prior to the start of a season, good things can be expected. Beltre is as consistent and solid a third baseman as there is in the game, and with the Rangers roster working its way back to health, expect improved HR and RBI numbers in 2015 despite his age.
