Adrian Beltre back in Rangers lineup after activated from DL
The Rangers delayed posting their lineup for Tuesday night’s home game against Detroit, waiting to see how Beltre would get through a pregame workout. He was reinstated from the disabled list to fourth in the lineup as the third baseman.
Texas put the 39-year-old Beltre on the disabled list April 25, a day after he got hurt in a home loss to Oakland. He pulled up limping on his way to first base and then gingerly walked off the field after his 3,075th hit.
Beltre, in his 21st big league season, is hitting .310 with one homer and eight RBIs.
To make room for Beltre, the Rangers sent infielder Eliezer Alvarez back to Double-A Frisco.
