Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is expected to go back on the 10-day disabled list and utilityman Jurickson Profar will be called up from Triple-A Round Rock.

Beltre, 38, left Tuesday’s game against the Mets with a jammed left ankle suffered stepping on first base on a fielder’s choice. The veteran had missed the first two months of the season with a strained right calf. Beltre is currently 48 hits shy of reaching 3,000 for his career, so Rangers fans will unfortunately have to wait a little while longer.

Profar, 24, has spent most of the season with Round Rock. There, he hit .267/.342/.427 with 17 extra-base hits and 20 RBI in 148 plate appearances.
