Latest Update Adrian Beltre perfect at the plate in loss Sat Aug, 16, 06:27 AM
Is superb with the glove at the hot corner. Has great bat speed and can be a big RBI producer when he's in the zone. Can get red-hot with the bat for stretches and carry his team on his back. Doesn't strike out a lot.
Flaws: : Is rather streaky and doesn't hit for a consistently high average as a result. Also lacks ideal patience at the dish. Is somewhat injury-prone. Can appear lazy at times. His cold snaps can take significant time to get out of.
Beltre has been one of only a few bright spots for the Rangers in 2014, as he is now slashing .321/.375/.504 with 17 home runs and 64 RBI through 411 at-bats. Considering the other alternatives at the hot corner, Beltre makes for one of the best third baseman to own this year and beyond. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Beltre has been the only player in the Rangers lineup who's actually met their expectations for the season. He's now slashing .320/.370/.510 and while he won't hit 30 home runs again this season, he should finish the season as a top-5 third baseman. He's as solid as they come and he hasn't shown any significant decline even at the age of 36.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Beltre finished July batting .301 with six home runs and 16 RBI as he continues to be one of the top options to deploy at the hot corner. He is now in the top 10 among American League hitters in batting average (.323), slugging (.514) and OPS (.883) and remains an elite fantasy option moving forward even if his surrounding cast brings him down.

Darvish is Jon Daniels' other apparent untouchable piece. Beltre is still ripping the cover off the ball as a 35-year old veteran, but him being "untouchable" must mean the Rangers think themselves extremely competitive in 2015. Analyst: Spencer Silva
