Great news for Adrian Beltre’s fans, after a back strain that left him off the field since the second inning of Game 1 of the American League Division Series, the player will bat third and play third base for the Texas Rangers on Monday. During the first inning of Game 1 he injured his back sliding into second base. He was able to drive in a run with a single in the second inning, but left the game after.

According to the Rangers, the player took batting practice at the club’s indoor batting cages, did some jogging, and decided he was fit to play. Beltre, who had 53 RBIs in his last 48 games, and hit .344 from Sept. 1 in the regular season is a key player for the Texas team.

Manager Jeff Banister said, “We feel like if Adrian comes in and says he’s ready to go, then he’s ready to go and he’ll be in the lineup,” but “If not, then we’ll post up with the players we have available to us and we’ll play a game of baseball at the level we typically play.”

The team is leading their series 2-1 with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Rangers players Shin-Soo Choo (1-for-13), Prince Fielder (1-for-12), Mitch Moreland (0-for-6) and Josh Hamilton (2-for-13) are hitting a combined .091 with zero homers and one RBI in the series.
