Adrian Beltre missed more than a month with hamstring problems last season, so there was plenty of worrying in Texas when he exited Saturday’s game with a left hamstring injury.
However, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com an MRI exam showed only a mild strain and Beltre is officially listed as day-to-day.
He’s not in the lineup tonight, so Michael Young will start at third base with Brandon Snyder at designated hitter, but it sounds like Beltre will definitely avoid the disabled list.
Reliever Mark Lowe wants to make a comeback, Jerry Crasnick reports. The 35-year-old veteran is working out in Portland, Oregon and would take an opportunity to pitch overseas as well as a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Lowe signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers back in January, but was cut in the middle of March and didn’t end up signing with another team. He last pitched in the majors in 2016 with the Tigers. Across parts of 11 seasons, Lowe has a career 4.22 ERA with 352 strikeouts and 163 walks in 385 2/3 innings. Lowe spent 2017 at Triple-A for the Mariners and White Sox, compiling a devilish 6.66 ERA in aggregate across 48 2/3 innings.
