08:12 AM ET 08.23 | Adrian Beltre is making strides in his effort to return to the Texas lineup. [Beltre], who went on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring on July 23, ran the bases on Monday for the first time since aggravating the injury on Aug. 6. Beltre said he ran 80 percent while running from home to second and second to home. He was scheduled to meet later with Dr. Keith Meister, the Rangers' team physician, to discuss his next course of action. "He did some running out there [Monday], just around the configuration of the infield," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He won't get on the bases until Dr. Meister signs off, and he won't get here until [Monday] afternoon." Beltre, who was hitting .276 with 20 home runs and 76 RBIs in 100 games, is still taking it slow because he does not want to risk another setback.

It will be a big boost when he gets back on the field at nothing less than 100%. In the meantime they are rolling well.

the rangers don't need beltre's bat not now perhaps by september then it could come handy,for now he should focus on getting himself healthy to the point that no more injuries should happen again!!
