Latest Update Adrian Beltre hits 13th home run Fri Jul, 11, 08:16 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.
There has been very little to talk about in regards to the Rangers season, but Beltre has certainly done his part. He is now first in the American League in batting (.341 BA) which has been aided by hitting .429 (16-for-40) in the month of July. Even if his recent surge was to fall off slightly in the second half, his power production (13 HR and 50 RBI) will be enough to keep him near the top of the rankings at third base.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Beltre is now riding a nine-game hit streak, which features two home runs, seven RBI and six runs scored. He is now sitting on a .336 average with 10 home runs and 45 RBI despite missing a significant amount of time earlier in the season. As long as he is able to avoid an extended stint on the disabled list in the second half, he will finish as one of the top fantasy third basemen once again. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Beltre has now hit safely in each of his last six games and is batting .450 (9-for-20) with two home runs, six RBI and four runs scored in that span. While the overall power numbers are down, his average remains strong at .335 and his .381 OBP continues to remain helpful. He's seeing the ball well still, so perhaps the power will resurface come the second half of the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Beltre is now 8-for-20 (.400 BA) over his last five games, but has just one extra-base hit and one RBI to show for it. Although he missed a significant amount of time due to injury earlier in the season, he has managed to produce when healthy, sporting a .321 average with eight home runs and 36 RBI through 240 at-bats. He remains one of the top third base options in all fantasy formats moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
