Beltre’s Season could end with another setback

"On Saturday, Beltre aggravated the injury during a running drill at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Beltre had been scheduled for a day off, but he pushed the club to let him work out on two consecutive days with the goal of returning to the lineup. Beltre has been unavailable for comment since that day, but he previously acknowledged being impatient.

The latest setback could keep Beltre out until September. The Rangers will cautiously treat Beltre because another aggravation of the injury could end his season."
