  • Adrian Beltre went 1-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Twins on Sunday.
    Advice: The Rangers found very little success against Jose Berrios and the Twins' bullpen, but Beltre was able to reach twice. He's reportedly available via trade -- although he does own 10-and-5 rights that would allow him to veto such move -- and his .314/.367/.453 line on the year along with still solid defense has to be appealing to any contenders looking for help on the hot corner. It could help his fantasy value, as well, as he should get more run-producing help in whatever lineup he joins.
  • Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have made Adrian Beltre available via trade.
    Advice: Beltre has 10-and-5 rights and thus has the ability to veto any trade, but the 39-year-old could be willing to approve a deal in order to get a shot to play in the postseason. Grant says that the Rangers are also willing to listen to offers for relievers Keone Kela and Jake Diekman. Beltre has dealt with injuries this season but is sporting a .314/.365/.456 batting line. It's been reported previously that the Phillies are one club known to have interest in him.
  • Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored on Saturday, leading the Rangers to a 9-6 victory over the Twins.
    Advice: Beltre crushed a solo homer in the fourth inning, increasing the Rangers' advantage to 9-2. The veteran third baseman is now hitting .314/.365/.456 with four homers and 25 RBI.
  • Jon Morosi of reports that the Phillies have expressed interest in trading for Adrian Beltre.
    Advice: He'd be a big upgrade defensively (and offensively) over Maikel Franco, who's been thrust back into an everyday role in Philly with J.P. Crawford out 4-6 weeks due to a broken hand. Beltre is batting .302/.357/.428 in 45 games this season for the Rangers and he still plays a great third base at age 39. The future Hall of Famer is in the final year of a two-year, $36 million deal.
  • Adrian Beltre hit a three-run homer off the Royals' Ian Kennedy on Monday.
    Advice: It was just Beltre's third homer in 149 at-bats this year, but he's batting a robust .322. He's 12-for-24 in his last seven games.
  • Adrian Beltre went 1-for-4 and drove in two runs during a 5-2 win over the Rockies on Saturday.
    Advice: His two-run triple in the eighth inning cracked open a tie game and led his team to victory. The shot off the right field wall appeared to be catchable but outfielder Carlos Gonzalez got turned around and not only didn't catch it but let it carom past him off the wall as well. The 39-year-old Beltre has spent two stints on the disabled list this year with calf injuries but has put good wood on the ball when healthy. He has a .329/.386/.448 slash line with two homers and 19 RBI in 41 games. The future Hall of Famer should continue to be a strong fantasy asset as long as he stays in the lineup.
