T.R. Sullivan: 'Get Ready For Adrian Beltre'

T.R. Sullivan, whose Rangers sources have downplayed the likelihood of a deal between the club and Adrian Beltre, now reports that the two sides are close.

The Rangers’ big free-agent purchase of the offseason is close to being completed. Get ready for Adrian Beltre to take over for Michael Young as the Rangers’ third baseman.

An official announcement will likely be delayed until after Beltre undergoes a physical and may not come until later this week. But the Rangers are willing to make a significant commitment to the 31-year-old third baseman, who has won two Gold Gloves and is coming off one of his best offensive seasons.

To discuss the potential deal, head on over to Lone Star Ball.
