Adrian Beltre activated off 10-day DL for Rangers

SEATTLE -- The Texas Rangers activated third baseman Adrian Beltre off the 10-day disabled list before Thursday's series finale against Seattle.

He will be the designated hitter in his return to the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Ryan Rua was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock to clear a roster spot.

Beltre was placed on the disabled list May 15, two days after he aggravated a left hamstring injury he suffered in the first month of the season. Beltre was off the DL only five days when he turned to try to get out a runner coming to third base and aggravated the injury. Beltre said he was experiencing a similar feeling but in a different area of his hamstring.

The 39-year-old missed 12 games between April 24 and May 8. He is hitting .314 with one homer and 12 RBIs in 29 games this season.
