Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre will miss at least two weeks after injuring his right thumb in Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox.
Beltre left the game after sliding into second base on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning. The Rangers later announced that Beltre has a sprained right thumb and a laceration that took four stitches to close.
On Monday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that Beltre suffered a dislocation and is seeking a second opinion.
The injury leaves the Rangers without a true third baseman. Utility infielder Adam Rosales, who has been the starting second baseman since Rougned Odor was demoted to Triple A earlier this month, has played in 92 games at third over eight seasons.
Beltre, 36, has not missed a game since last April, a streak of 191 games. He is batting .251 with six home runs this season.
