Adrian Beltre returned to the lineup and went 1-for-5 with a double and one RBI against the Mariners on Friday.
As expected, Beltre was back in the lineup on Friday night and escaped without re-aggravating his injury lower half, which means it should be smooth sailing ahead. He has yet to hit his first home run of the season through 33 at-bats, but has made good contact in the early going, so there is nothing fantasy owners should worry about moving forward.

Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
