Beltre to have MRI, doubtful for Yanks series
DETROIT -- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre will undergo an MRI on Monday in Texas and is doubtful for their three-game series with the Yankees. Beltre is sidelined with a strained left hamstring and is still hoping to avoid the disabled list.

Beltre injured the leg running the bases in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Tigers in Game 1 of a doubleheader and said it still felt the same on Sunday.

"But I don't think it will be a big deal," Beltre said. "It will be a couple of days. I'll get an MRI tomorrow and go from there."

Beltre missed five weeks in the second half of last season with a strained left hamstring.

"I knew last year when it happen, it wasn't good," Beltre said. "This is different."

Michael Young, after playing second base in Game 1, started at third base in Game 2 of the Saturday doubleheader, but Alberto Gonzalez was there on Sunday afternoon.

"Mike played two games on the field," manager Ron Washington said. "I wanted to give him a break."
