Latest Update Adrian Beltre went 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored and a walk in the Rangers loss to the Angels on Tuesday. Wed Sep, 10, 12:14 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.
Par for the course for this ageless wonder. The home run was his 18th of the season, which means his two-year 30 home run streak will come to an end barring an absolute miracle. It's doesn't appear his power has dropped off much, however -- if that's what you're thinking. Beltre currently sports the highest walk-rate of his career (9.1%), and with the Rangers' badly depleted lineup, opposing pitchers have been more than willing to pitch around the slugger. Don't be surprised if he challenges for 30 again in 2015.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Beltre was the engine of the Texas offense Sunday driving in one of their three runs and racking up two of the eleven hits. The fine wine of the MLB, the 35-year old vet hasn't seen his numbers drop at all and there's no reason to believe the wheels will come off in 2015 either.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Another great night for Beltre who now has three-straight multi-hit games. With a .323 average, 17 home runs and 65 RBI, he's simply a guy you leave in your lineup day-in and day-out. There's no reason to think otherwise unless you play in a 6-team league and even then that's a stretch.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
