Rangers | Engel Beltre recalled

The Texas Rangers recalled OF Engel Beltre from Triple-A Round Rock Sunday, June 23, to replace the injured OF Craig Gentry (hand). Manager Ron Washington said he will find time to play Beltre, who is considered an above-average defensive outfielder. "He plays hard," Washington said. "He's got a good bat, he can run, play defense. I will find some playing time for him, but he is not here to unseat (OF Leonys Martin). We needed a center fielder and he was the center fielder we had down there."

Fantasy Tip: Beltre is only worth a flier in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at this point, unless additional injuries open up a more prominent role.
