Adrian Beltre will be out weeks, not days, according to Texas Rangers assistant g.m. Mike Daly (via T.R. Sullivan on Twitter), with the Rangers taking a conservative approach to the calf strain which has had him on the d.l. since Opening Day. The setback Beltre suffered Saturday likely means Joey Gallo will continue manning the hot corner for the rest of the month, while the Rangers play things safe with their 38 year old future Hall of Famer.
Meanwhile, also via T.R. Sullivan on Twitter, pitcher Tyson Ross, who is working his way back from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, is dealing with back spasms, which Sullivan says is setting Ross back at least a week in his throwing program. Ross was looking at a May return anyway, but now it may be late May.
Let’s hope nothing else bad happens before the game starts tonight.
