3B,DH - FA - RET
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has announced that he is retiring from baseball after 21 seasons, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman. Beltre played for the Dodgers, Mariners, Red Sox, and Rangers over the course of his career.
Beltre is a future Hall of Famer who was a fantasy mainstay even into his late 30s. He finished his career with 477 home runs, 3,166 hits, 1,707 RBIs, and a .286 batting average.
Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 at the plate with two homers and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the A's.
After a disappointing season, it looks like Beltre may finally be heating up. Over his last seven games, the veteran third baseman is hitting .385 with five home runs. Fantasy owners may want to grab Beltre if he is available as he could finish the year strong.
Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a strikeout Wednesday against the Angels.
Beltre has homered in back to back games, something that's great to see from the veteran third baseman down the stretch. While he's continued to maintain a solid average overall this season, he hasn't shown his usual power. Hopefully, this is a sign that he'll finish strong in that department. He now has 10 homers on the season.
Adrian Beltre went 1-for-4 at the plate with a solo home run Saturday against the Twins.
Despite the solo homer on Saturday, Beltre has been struggling and is hitting just .194 over the last 14 games. The veteran third baseman is no longer a must-own in standard leagues and fantasy owners may want to look at the wire for a better option if they still own Beltre.
