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.
