DALLAS (105.3 The Fan/AP) - Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is returning to the disabled list, general manager Jon Daniels told 105.3 The Fan on Monday.

Beltre injured his left hamstring again after he fielded a Max Stassi slow chopper and tried to tag Yuli Gurriel at third before he came out.

"He felt a similar spot in his hamstring. Slightly different but definitely related (to his previous injury). There's (still) some weakness there in the muscle," Daniels told The Ben and Skin Show. "He's going to (be placed) on the DL. We haven't made it official yet, but we'll put him on there tomorrow."

Daniels did acknowledge that Beltre had yet to undergo an MRI because he wanted to remain with his teammates on their current road trip, but he'll have it when they return from Chicago. 

When it comes to how long Beltre will be out, Daniels was asked if he'd be out a month or so, to which he agreed was possible.

"I really don't have anything (an idea). That's probably a reasonable guess. But, that's just a guess at this point," Daniels said. With Adrian, I'm of the mindset really to trust him. He knows his body better than anybody. And, the reality is he's 39-years-old, he has a history with hamstring issues. He's going to be the best one to diagnosis it. It's probably going to be a little longer this time than the last one since we saw it repeat itself already."

Beltre was activated off the disabled list on May 8 after missing 12 games with a left hamstring strain. 

"Tough because I didn't feel any setback, I didn't feel the hamstring at all," Beltre said after the game. "I was trying to protect it the whole time because I knew it would take me a little longer to run hard on any play. That play when I turned, I felt it right away. Disappointed, but nothing I can do now."
