The Texas Rangers have no plans to place 3B Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) on the disabled list after his MRI exam showed only a Grade 1 left quadriceps strain. Instead, the team will push back SP Colby Lewis' (hip) season debut to Monday, April 14, or Tuesday, April 15, to give them more time to evaluate Beltre.
Fantasy Tip: Beltre isn't out of the woods just yet. If he hasn't improved drastically by Monday or Tuesday, the Rangers can still place him on the DL and backdate the stint. In his absence, some combination of Joshua Wilson and Kevin Kouzmanoff will fill in at the hot corner. If you own Beltre, be fully prepared for the chance that he does go on the shelf.

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (hip) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, April 9, putting him on track to make his season debut for the team this weekend, according to general manager Jon Daniels. "The guy has a track record of pushing through, and we all felt if anybody could do it, it would be Colby. It's going to be a test. His last few outings, spring training and rehab, he's looked good. Obviously the big leagues are a different animal, but we're at a point where it makes sense to take a look," Daniels said.
