Texas Rangers News: Adrian Beltre Out For At Least Two Weeks

The Texas Rangers will be without third baseman Adrian Beltre for the next two weeks due to a thumb injury sustained in Sunday's walkoff home victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Beltre jammed his thumb into second base on a hard, head-first slide. He was forced to leave the game after five innings.

According to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, "Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister examined Beltre and found a sprain and a laceration, which required four stitches to close. Based on Meister’s findings, the club estimated Beltre will be out for about two weeks."

Beltre's absence will snap his consecutive games streak at 191, which began after he returned from the disabled list back on April 25, 2014. It is the second-longest current streak in the majors behind Atlanta's Freddie Freeman at 215.

The most experienced third baseman on the roster behind Beltre is Adam Rosales. He has started 65 games at the corner over his MLB career.
