Adrian Beltre coming along 'conservatively'

The Rangers are taking a conservative approach to Adrian Beltre's return from a calf strain that's sidelined him to start the season.

Fantasy Impact

There's still not a definitive timeframe on Beltre's return, but there hasn't been a setback reported which is good. He should return sooner than later, and will be back as a starter. Joey Gallo has held down the fort, and the Rangers have said that he's allowed them to not rush Beltre.

Adrian Beltre gets good news from MRI after setback

Beltre was due to come off the Disabled List on Sunday but was held back due to an apparent setback. The ensuing MRI revealed a Grade one calf strain.

Fantasy Impact

The strain is the least severe strain on the Grade scale and according to Sullivan, the Rangers will be playing this conservatively. No timetable for his return yet.

Adrian Beltre to open the season on the DL

Adrian Beltre will open the season on the 10-day disabled list with a calf injury.

Fantasy Impact

Beltre going to the disabled list will cause slight issues to begin the season but should pay off in the long run. Beltre should be owned in all leagues, though have a handcuff as he will get more days off considering his age and the Rangers wanting to give at-bats to younger players. Joey Gallo will start at 3B in Beltre's absence.

Adrian Beltre expected to make opening day despite strain

This is the second time this Spring that a calf strain was reported for Adrian Beltre, but, so far there is no plan to move the third baseman to the 10-day DL.

Fantasy Impact

Adrian Beltre has played through worse in his long career. I would expect nothing less than the consistency we are use to from this long-time veteran including a steady average and some pop with the bat.

Adrian Beltre to miss one-to-two weeks with calf strain

Adrian Beltre is expected to miss one-to-two weeks with a strained left calf.

Fantasy Impact

Because of the injury Beltre is expected to miss the first week of the World Baseball Classic. If the team moves on, he could be added to the roster for the second round. Based on Beltre's 2016 numbers it seems like the 37-year-old won't be slowing down anytime soon. FanGraphs has Beltre projected to hit .294 with 23 home runs, 92 RBI, and 80 runs. In 2016 Beltre hit .300 with 32 home runs, 104 RBI, and 89 runs. I would be hesitant to draft Beltre because of his age, but I always have. I would list Adrian as an early mid-round 3B after the top tier third basemen are gone.
