Adrian Beltre’s house broken into; AL pennant ring, suite tickets stolen

7 Comments

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Adrian Beltre’s house was broken into last week. Among the things taken: his 2011 AL championship ring and tickets to a suite at Globe Life Park.

The theft of the tickets mildly amused Beltre, who said “I’d like to see them show up there.” By the same token, I’d like to see someone try to fence an AL championship ring that is quite obviously Adrian Beltre’s. But whoever said crooks were smart? Stick to taking TVs and stuff, you guys. They’re way lighter than they used to be.

The Diamondbacks announced that the club optioned starter Matt Koch to Triple-A Reno after Tuesday night’s game. According to Nick Piecoro of Azcentral Sports, Shelby Miller will likely be activated from the 60-day disabled list to start against the Marlins on Monday.

Miller, 27, has been out since late April of 2017 after undergoing and rehabilitating from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander has had a rough time since coming to the Diamondbacks in a trade with the Braves, starting 24 games since the beginning of the 2016 season with a 5.78 ERA and a 90/54 K/BB ratio in 123 innings.

That trade, consummated on December 9, 2015, is certainly one the D-Backs would like to take back. They received Miller and Gabe Speier from the Braves and gave up Ender Inciarte, Dansby Swanson, and Aaron Blair.

Koch, 27, made 12 starts and one relief appearance this season, compiling a 4.40 ERA with a 38/17 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings.
