Rangers' Adrian Beltre leaves game with a tight quad

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Adrian Beltre of the Texas Rangers left Tuesday’s game against the Red Sox with tightness in his left quad.

Beltre left the game as the Rangers were embarrassing the Red Sox on their home field 9-1 in the 5th inning. With Washington pulling him, it might have been just a precautionary subbing as they try to preserve their star.

The right-handed slugger went 2 for 3 with 2 runs batted in before he left the game. This season he is 8 of 28 with 0 home runs and 4 runs batted in while playing in all 8 games.

In March our very own Darius Austin reported that he left a Spring Training game with a tight quad and sat out a few days.

Beltre, 35, hit for a slash of .315/.371/.509 with 30 home runs, 92 runs batted in, 50 walks, and 78 strikeouts in 2013. He had an impressive 5.5 WAR (Wins Above Replacement) while playing 161 games.

We will update you on any more information when it comes out.
