Adrian Beltre Injury: Texas Rangers' Third Baseman Exits Game With Apparent Hamstring Injury

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre exited Saturday's game in the top of the second inning with what appeared to be a left hamstring injury. Beltre pulled up lame as he was coasting into second base with a lead off double and, after a quick chat on the field with the Rangers trainer, was replaced by pinch runner Alberto Gonzalez.

Beltre had injury problems last season with the Rangers, playing in only 124 games, the second lowest total in his career not including his rookie season. Beltre left the game 2-for-2, improving his average on the young season to .304 (.826 OPS).

The Texas Rangers were already up 8-0 on Tigers' starter Rick Porcello when Beltre was pulled and Beltre's pinch runner would later score to make it 9-0. That's where the game stands now in the bottom of the second.
