April 25, 2018 - 4:19 pm

ARLINGTON (105.3 The Fan/AP) - Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. He is the third Texas starting infielder out with an injury.

The Rangers made the move Wednesday, a day after Beltre pulled up on his way to first base in the eighth inning of a loss to Oakland. Beltre limped off the field after getting to first on his 3,075th career hit.

In a corresponding move, the Rangers recalled Ryan Rua from Triple-A Round Rock

It is the fifth time since joining the Rangers in 2011 that the 39-year-old Beltre has gone on the DL because of leg issues. He missed the first 51 games last year because of calf and hamstring problems.

Shortstop Elvis Andrus is out at least another month after breaking his right elbow when he was hit by a pitch April 12. Second baseman Rougned Odor has been out since April 10 with a left hamstring strain.

Texas also activated starting pitcher Doug Fister in time to start tonight's finale with the A's. To make room on the roster for Fister, the club optioned reliever Matt Bush to Round Rock. Bush has made appearances his four straight games out of the bullpen.
