Filed under: Continues To Report That Rangers, Adrian Beltre Are Near Deal

While local sources haven’t confirmed anything, has updated yesterday’s Enrique Rojas story within the hour, reporting that the Rangers are near a deal with Adrian Beltre. The newest update places the deal at five years, with an option for a sixth. The nature of that option is not known.

Beltre is widely regarded as the best defensive third baseman in baseball and would fill a need for a powerful right-handed bat, likely replacing Vladimir Guerrero in the Texas lineup.
