The 39-year-old missed time earlier this season when he landed on the disabled list April 25 with a left hamstring strain.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said there is no timetable as of yet, but the team will know more when it gets to Seattle for a three-game series starting Tuesday.

The five-time Gold Glove victor fielded a grounder but tried to beat Astros runner Yuli Gurriel to third base for a force out instead of throwing to first.

"Tough because I didn't feel any setback, I didn't feel the hamstring at all, " Beltre said.


Beltre lost the race and came away from the play with an obvious limp. "Disappointed, but nothing I can do now".

Beltre is averaging 8.5 FanDuel points through 29 games this season while slashing.314/.375/.422 with 1 homer, 12 RBI, and 11 runs scored across 120 plate appearances. Before mid-April, Elvis Andrus (fractured right elbow) and Rougned Odor (strained left hamstring) were also shelved. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will likely fill in at the hot corner if Beltre is unavailable.
