Breaking News:

MLB roundup: Rangers' Beltre likely to miss Yankees series

The SportsXchange

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is scheduled to have an MRI exam on Monday on his strained left hamstring, and he is unlikely to play in the three-game series with the New York Yankees.

Beltre was injured while running the bases in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Tigers in the first game of the doubleheader.

Beltre sat out Sunday's game, but is still hoping to avoid going on the disabled list.

"But I don't think it will be a big deal," Beltre told MLB.com Sunday. "It will be a couple of days."

Last season, Beltre missed five weeks with a strained left hamstring.

Beltre is hitting .304 with two homers this season.

Alberto Gonzalez was the Rangers' starting third baseman on Sunday.

--- The Cleveland Indians sent left-handed pitcher David Huff to Class AAA Columbus after activating him from the 15-day disabled list Sunday.

Huff had been in Class AA Akron on a rehabilitation assignment. He was placed on the disabled list March 30 after sustaining a strained right hamstring.

He made one start for Akron, throwing four innings and allowing one hit, one walk and striking out three batters.

--- The Chicago Cubs wasted no time in getting Randy Wells in the lineup. Soon after he was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, he was scheduled to start against the Cincinnati Reds.

Wells, 29, who has spent much of the last three seasons in the Cubs' starting rotation, has a 27-30 major-league record in 86 games. He has a career ERA of 4.01 in 500 1/3 innings.

Last season he was 7-6 record with a 4.99 ERA in 23 starts. He was 1-0 with a 9.42 ERA in three starts this month at Iowa.

Wells will take the roster spot of outfielder Marlon Byrd, who was traded Saturday to the Boston Red Sox.
