ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is on the disabled list again with another leg issue, and is the third Texas starting infielder out with an injury."It's a gut punch," manager Jeff Banister said. "It doesn't feel good."The Rangers placed Beltre on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained left hamstring. Beltre got hurt in the eighth inning of a 3-2 home loss to Oakland on Tuesday night, when he pulled up limping on his way to first base and then gingerly walked off the field after his 3,075th career hit."Conservatively, but yet knowing Adrian, kind of his history and what he's able to maneuver through, anything's possible," Banister said, when asked how long Beltre would be out. "We do know it's at least a minimum of 10 days."It is the fifth time since joining the Rangers in 2011 that the 39-year-old Beltre has gone on the DL because of leg issues. He missed the first 51 games last season because of calf and hamstring problems before becoming the ... [More]

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Eric Thames earned a reputation as a workout warrior during his days playing professionally in South Korea, where he cultivated the prodigious power that served him so well last season with the Brewers.Well, his leg muscles are going to be pretty strong in a couple months.Thames joked Wednesday that he won't be able to exercise much else after an MRI exam revealed that he had torn the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. The first baseman will head back to Milwaukee after his team wraps up its two-game set in Kansas City and be examined by team doctors, then likely schedule surgery in the hopes of returning for the second half of the season."Personally I feel like I let everybody down, but it's nothing I can control," said Thames, who was hitting .250 and second in the National League with seven homers. "I saw on (television) that I'll be out six to eight weeks, so I guess that's what it is. It all depends on when the surgery is."The Royals recalled ri... [More]

I'm trying to approach it like a minor league game at the major league level."Acuna wore No. 13, just like fellow Venezuelans Dave Concepcion and Ozzie Guillen.Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said there was no doubt Acuna would start in his debut."I didn't even think about that," Snitker said. "We've never done that with any of our young players. If they come up, they need to play."Acuna rose from Class A to Triple-A in 2017, hitting a combined .325 with 21 home runs, 82 RBIs and 44 stolen bases.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore Orioles infielder Tim Beckham is considering surgery on the groin injury that sent him to the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.Beckham saw a specialist in Philadelphia on Wednesday, and must decide whether to have sports hernia surgery or attempt to rehabilitate the injury.It appears as if surgery is the most viable option, which would mean Beckham would be out for at least six weeks."You've got an opportunity to rehab him, be back and dealing with the same thing shortly thereafter," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Or you can do something surgically and get it behind you. I think that's what they're considering right now."The procedure could take place as soon as Thursday, Showalter said.Beckham came to the Orioles before the July 31 non-waiver deadline last season and became an immediate contributor at shortstop and at the plate. He moved to third base this year and hoped to retain his success offensively, but was batting .179 with one homer and four R... [More]
