Report: Rangers' Beltre available on the trade market


Adrian Beltre's days with the Texas Rangers could be coming to an end.

The veteran third baseman will reportedly be available on the trade market, a source tells Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.

The Rangers moving Beltre has been the subject of rumors in recent days, but the four-time All-Star is looking to keep his focus on the field.

"Right now, I'm not thinking about that," Beltre said Saturday. "When I get there - if I get there - and I go over the situation with my family, then I'll think about it. Right now, I'm worried about my swing and the Texas Rangers and how to keep doing what we've been doing lately."

Despite two trips to the disabled list this season, Beltre's effectiveness at the plate isn't dwindling. After going 3-for-5 with a home run on Saturday, Beltre is hitting .314/.365/.456 with four long balls and 25 RBIs in 192 plate appearances.

He has the power to block any trade due to service time - he's playing in his 21st MLB season - and will be a free agent at season's end.

In addition to Beltre, the Rangers are apparently open to moving relievers Jake Diekman and Keone Kela.
