Good morning baseball fans!
Adrian Beltre is reportedly finalizing an extension that would pay him $36 million:
Since signing with Texas, Beltre has posted a slash line of .309/.358/.515 with a wOBA of .373 and a wRC+ of 132. He's been worth 27.8 fWAR, and provided the Rangers with $125.3 million in surplus value (according to FanGraphs), and has been unequivocally fantastic. Beltre made it no secret that he wanted to stay in Texas beyond this season, and it now appears as if he'll get his wish.
Is Fredi Gonzalez on the hot seat? It is probably safe to assume yes.
Charlie Blackmon is headed to the 15-day DL with a foot injury.
