Jon Daniels: Rangers leaning towards putting Adrian Beltre on the disabled list

The Texas Rangers are leaning towards putting third baseman Adrian Beltre on the disabled list, according to Jon Daniels (via the Ranger beat guys on Twitter).

Beltre strained his quad on Tuesday, and has been out of action since then, although the Rangers have opted to wait until the start of next week to make a decision on whether to put Beltre on the d.l.

Kevin Kouzmanoff was called up from AAA to give the Rangers another infielder while Beltre is unavailable.  If Beltre were to go on the d.l., Kouzmanoff would likely be the regular third baseman until he is ready to return.

We learned yesterday that the strain wasn't as serious as the Rangers had feared, leading them to hold off on making a d.l. move with Beltre, and if he were to go on the disabled list, it would likely be a relatively short stint.  Still, the Rangers need to keep Beltre healthy this season, and if that means him missing a couple of weeks now so that he's not out a longer period of time later in the season, well, that's the trade off the Rangers are going to be willing to make.
