Beltre Still Out Of Rangers Lineup Due To Left Hamstring

ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is still out of the lineup because of his troublesome left hamstring, but still on the active roster.

Beltre said before the Rangers' game Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels that he is feeling better than he did when he strained the hamstring earlier this season.

The 39-year-old third baseman was on the DL twice earlier this season, and aggravated the injury Monday night.

The Rangers activated right fielder Nomar Mazara from the 10-day disabled list. He hadn't played since the All-Star break because of a sprained right thumb.

Outfielder Willie Calhoun was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock. Calhoun hit .275 with nine RBIs in 22 games with the Rangers after being called up July 20 when Mazara was formally put on the DL.

The Rangers are currently in last place in the American League West division with a 53-69 record.
