MLB Rumors: Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has Grade 1 strain of quad

The Texas Rangers finally got word on Adrian Beltre‘s injury today and shockingly, it’s not as bad as originally feared.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Beltre has a Grade 1 strain of his left quad – a far better diagnoses than a potential tear or a deeper strain.

Because the injury isn’t as bad as originally feared, the Rangers and Beltre agreed that they would attempt to avoid the disabled list for now and hope a few days off will help with the pain and tightness.

After a pensive day waiting for results of an MRI exam on third baseman Adrian Beltre’s sore quadriceps muscle, the Rangers decided they were willing to wait a little longer for him.

“It wasn’t as severe as we originally feared,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. “It was a mild Grade 1 strain. We’re going to play it conservatively and give it a few days Then we will make a determination on whether it needs to be a DL move or if Adrian can manage it.”

As long as Beltre doesn’t play in any game, he can be retroactively placed on the disabled list if the injury does flare up or get worse.
