Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre will now earn $16 million in 2015 and $18 million in 2016 as part of his option being picked up Monday, Feb. 23. The two salaries had previously been reversed.
Fantasy Tip: As previously noted, Beltre remains a safe fantasy value at third base, as he has mastered the art of hitting in Texas' ballpark in the dead of summer.

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre had his option for the 2016 season picked up Monday, Feb. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Despite his age (36 in April), Beltre remains one of the safer power options at third base for fantasy owners. He is listed as second behind Anthony Rendon in our fantasy third base rankings for 2015. Injuries may be a concern, though, so make sure you have plenty of insurance behind him.

The Texas Rangers are considering exercising their 2016 contract option for 3B Adrian Beltre, even though his deal can be voided if he fails to reach 586 plate appearances this season, according to general manager Jon Daniels. Beltre is slated to earn $18 million in 2015 as part of the final season of a five-year, $80 million deal. If the Rangers bring him back in 2016, he would make $16 million.
Fantasy Tip: Beltre will turn 36 during the opening week of the season and remains one of the league's better third basemen, although his power numbers dipped somewhat last year. He is likely to be selected in the early rounds of fantasy baseball drafts.
