Adrian Beltre activated off 10-day DL for Rangers

SEATTLE (AP) The Texas Rangers activated third baseman Adrian Beltre off the 10-day disabled list before Thursday’s series finale against Seattle.

Ryan Rua was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock to clear a roster spot.

Beltre was placed on the disabled list May 15, two days after he aggravated a left hamstring injury he suffered in the first month of the season. Beltre was off the DL only five days when he turned to try to get out a runner coming to third base and aggravated the injury. Beltre said he was experiencing a similar feeling but in a different area of his hamstring.

The 39-year-old missed 12 games between April 24 and May 8. He is hitting .314 with one homer and 12 RBIs in 29 games this season.
