ARLINGTON Charlie Blackmon Jersey , Texas (AP) — Adrian Beltre wants to stay healthy and help the last-place Texas Rangers finish strong in the last month of the season. Baseball’s active career hits leader isn’t saying if it will be the last few weeks of his Hall of Fame-caliber career.“I’m not thinking about next year yet,” Beltre said Monday. “That’s going to be in the offseason.”The 39-year-old third baseman has been bothered by hamstring issues throughout this season, his second year in a row going on the disabled list multiple times because of leg ailments. Beltre missed 28 games during two DL stints earlier this season, and has been primarily a designated hitter in the last month.What is certain is that Beltre will finish this season, his 21st in the majors, with the Rangers after the deadline passed Friday for players to join other teams and be eligible for postseason play.While Beltre’s only World Series appearance came in 2011, his first season with the Rangers, he has never been eager to leave Texas.“I’ve been here eight years. Like I’ve said before http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , the only way it was going to happen — me going somewhere — is if it made sense for both parties: me and the team,” Beltre said. “Obviously, they understand that for me, it’s always been important to have a chance to win the World Series. If something comes up, let me know, if it makes sense for them and (me). Obviously, it didn’t make sense for both of us.”Beltre and general manager Jon Daniels both acknowledged, without elaborating Trevor Story Jersey , that there was at least some discussion about a potential move last week.“There was a situation last week that presented itself. We talked about it with Adrian,” Daniels said. “It wasn’t, for a number of reasons, it just wasn’t the right fit. Mutually kind of decided.”Beltre went into Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels with 3,144 career hits and 470 home runs. He was the DH for the ninth time in his last 10 starts, but said he was “close to 100 percent” and expected to play third base on Tuesday.A four-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove Award winner, Beltre has indicated that if he plays another season he wants to finish his career with the Rangers. This is the last year of his contract.“He’s said he doesn’t know what he’s going to do next year, if he’s going to play or not http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , and if he wanted to push and push for the trade, we would’ve honored that,” Daniels said. “For him not to have done so says a lot, how he feels about his teammates and the fans in particular. That piece of it, I’m in awe of.” What is Billy Eppler doing anyway?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Angels PregameAngels PostgameGamethreadsHalos Heaven PodcastsShohei OhtaniMinor LeaguesInterviewsAngels NewsOff-Season TrackerAngels send Conor Lillis-White to the Cubs because they don’t need any stinkin’ leftiesNew,114commentsWhat is Billy Eppler doing anyway?a spot in the Starbucks line at Mandalay Bay.But no, apparently that meant the Angels are sending Conor Lillis-White to the Cubs. Who is Conor Lillis-White you might ask (and probably did)? He has never been much of a top prospect, but Lillis-White has performed at pretty much every level. Over 4 minor league seasons he amassed 252 Ks in 190.2 innings. Lillis-White also has a carer 3.35 ERA along with a 1.233 WHIP and 11.9 K/9 rate.He threw 37.1 innings for Salt Lake last year with a respectable 3.86 ERA and 12.5 K/9.But wait Greg Holland Jersey , there’s more! Look how good the dude was against lefties:Those are some nice numbers and with the loss of Jose Alvarez, the Angels are burning through lefty arms like Mike Scioscia at the pasta bar.Let’s recap the off season so far:Nah, never mind. It’s been one big pile of poo, including the signing of Justin “CJ” Bour(ing). The off-season has a long way to go, however, so stick around and enjoy the ride - just don’t expect it to be too full of thrills.
