Analysis: In a somewhat surprising move, the Rangers announced less than 90 minutes before the start of Tuesday night's game against Oakland that Beltre was being activated from the disabled list after missing 19 games because of a sprained left thumb. Beltre had said as recently as Sunday that it was still painful to swing a bat and he didn't know when he would be playing. Texas inserted him into its starting lineup, batting fourth and playing third base.

Analysis: Beltre was due to be paid $18 million this year and $16 million in 2016, but the team had the right to void 2016 if the four-time All-Star and Gold Glove winner didn't have at least 586 plate appearances this season. Under the amendment announced Monday, Beltre is guaranteed $16 million this year and $18 million in 2016. The 35-year-old made $17 million last season, when he hit .324 with 19 homers and 77 RBIs.
