Adrian Beltre has left hamstring strain

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre pulled into third base in the fifth inning with a left hamstring strain. He will have an MRI on Saturday.

Chris Davis was pulled from the Triple-A Round Rock game moments after the injury occurred and would replace Beltre assuming he goes on the disabled list. (The club is already calling this a strain, which makes a DL stint probable.)

Beltre, 32, is the club’s leader in RBIs with 76 and is second in homers with 20. He is the only Ranger to appear in every game this season. He has played in all 100 games and has started in 99.

Davis is hitting .363 with 24 homers and 65 RBIs in 47 games in Triple-A. He’s played third base and left field in that stint and can also play first base if needed.
