All-Star third baseman Adrian Beltre and the American League champion Texas Rangers are nearing agreement on a contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press on Tuesday. "We've still got some central issues to resolve. Not done yet," the person said, without getting into specifics. Beltre became a free agent after turning down a $10-million player option to stay with Boston. The Angels were among the teams pursuing Beltre this off-season.

ARLINGTON, Texas - A crucial seven-game trip to Oakland and Texas began with such promise July 25, the Angels busting out for eight runs to beat the first-place Athletics and pull to within 10 games in the American League West. Then the losses began to mount. The Angels lost the next six games, the last three on walk-off home runs by the Rangers, including Adrian Beltre's ninth-inning solo shot against Michael Kohn (1-1) that gave Texas a 2-1 victory Wednesday night and kept the Angels 14 games back in the division.

Adrian Beltre has been on quite a tear lately for the Texas Rangers. In his last eight games, the veteran third baseman is hitting .385 with six home runs and 13 RBIs. That includes a three-home run game and another in which he hit for the cycle last week, plus a three-for-three, four-RBI performance with another home run to lead the Rangers over the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-5, Monday night. “He's locked in,” Rangers Manager Ron Washington said. Over his last 65 games, Beltre is hitting .332 with 15 homers, 14 doubles and 44 RBIs.

The All-Snubbed team It's called the All-Star game - but not all the stars who deserve to play in the exhibition will be at Citi Field on Tuesday. Some missed their flights to New York because of the rule requiring each team to have at least one All-Star representative. (Raise your hand if you really think Everth Cabrera and Jason Castro are All-Stars.) And at least three position players in the American League West may have lost their spots to an East Coast bias that resulted in just two position players from the division being chosen as All-Stars.

The grapevine: Initial discussions between the Dodgers and Montreal Expos regarding the reacquisition of Pedro Martinez indicate it may be a difficult proposition. The Expos seem intent on landing third base prospect Adrian Beltre as part of any package involving Martinez, but the Dodgers will not deal Beltre or Paul Konerko.

Dodger third baseman Adrian Beltre must decide by Dec. 5 whether to file for arbitration or receive $2.8 million under the final season of a three-year contract. Beltre, who had a salary of $1.25 million in 2001, batted .265 with 13 home runs and 60 runs batted in. He played in only 126 games after undergoing abdominal surgery twice in two months. The Dodgers are considering using Beltre in the leadoff spot next season.

Is Fred Claire on drugs? The Dodgers have a chance to trade for Pedro Martinez, but are apparently unwilling to part with Adrian Beltre. Adrian who? What a surprise--Claire refuses to give up a totally unproven minor leaguer for a proven ace. He's probably waiting for Pat Zachry to come out of retirement so the Dodgers can sign him to a minor league contract. JOSH SEGAL San Diego

Obviously for the same price, every man, woman and child on this planet would have chosen Adrian Beltre over J.D. Drew. I enjoyed your Feb. 22 article about Drew, but all I see is a man who cares about two things above all else: himself and money. He won't play through pain and all his choices about where to play have been about money, including this choice. Howie Goldfarb Redondo Beach Headline in Feb. 18 Times: "DePodesta Likes His Team." He might be the only one who does.

A frustration-filled game ended in jubilation for the Angels on Tuesday night when Howie Kendrick hit the team's second walk-off home run in three days, a solo shot to center that gave the Angels a 5-4, 11-inning victory over the Texas Rangers. "It's a great feeling to know you can leave the other team on the field, but to get the victory is the most important thing," Kendrick said after his fourth career walk-off hit. "Any game against these guys is really tough because neither team lays down.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The regular season is four games old, a tiny sample size, but it already has a familiar ring. As in 2012, when they lost 14 of their first 20 games, the Angels - especially the sluggers in the middle of the order - are struggling at the plate, leaving little margin for error for everyone else. Texas got the best of former Rangers star Josh Hamilton and the Angels on Friday, with Ian Kinsler hitting a two-out, run-scoring single to right field in the eighth inning that lifted Texas to a 3-2 victory at the Ballpark in Arlington.

The Angels curse Adrian Beltre. The Angels toast Adrian Beltre. They could hang on his every at-bat the rest of the way. If the toasts outnumber the curses, the Angels just might live to see the playoffs after all. The Dodgers? They're on life support. That is where the Angels were five days ago, when Beltre hit a mammoth ninth-inning home run in Anaheim, the one that appeared to lower the curtain of doom over the home team. The Angels were 4 1/2 games out of a playoff spot with 13 to play, and the fat lady was warming up in the bullpen.

This little two-man relay team the Angels have forged with Zack Greinke and Ernesto Frieri is not going to work as long as the anchor man keeps dropping the baton. In a near carbon copy of Saturday's gut-wrenching loss in Kansas City, Greinke handed the ball to Frieri after a superb effort, and that ball was deposited way beyond an outfield wall by an opposing slugger. This time it was Adrian Beltre who drove yet another dagger into the Angels' fading playoff hopes, crushing a Frieri slider for a two-run home run to left field in the top of the ninth inning to lift the Texas Rangers to a 3-1 victory Thursday night in Angel Stadium.

The Texas Rangers will be without middle-of-the-order sluggers Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre for Wednesday night's game against the Angels; Hamilton suffering from vision problems and Beltre from intestinal issues that prevented him from coming to the stadium. But the Angels got their No. 3 hitter back. Albert Pujols is in the lineup after missing Tuesday night's 11-3 win over the Rangers to remain in Missouri with his wife, Deidre, who gave birth to the couple's fifth child, a daughter named Esther Grace, Sunday morning in Kansas City.

Let's get one thing straight: Adrian Beltre is no less guilty than the Dodgers. How else to explain his silence to all Dodger published information stating his incorrect age for the last five years? 1978 reads the same, no matter the language. It's one thing to "play the lie" until it benefits you big time, but please, Adrian, don't play the innocent, it makes us paying fans sick and bitter. DALE ZABEL Los Angeles What a relief Adrian Beltre isn't bitter toward the Dodgers for signing him when he was only 15. I'm sure there are much more lucrative opportunities available to 15-year-olds in the Dominican Republic than the $23,000 the Dodgers gave him to play baseball.

Third baseman Adrian Beltre underwent surgery Monday in Los Angeles to have a wound on his large intestine closed. Surgeon Robert Shorr, who performed the 80-minute procedure at Centinela Hospital Medical Center, said Beltre experienced no "problems or complications" during his second abdominal surgery in two months. But Shorr, who said Beltre would be hospitalized at least a week, would not speculate on when the third baseman might return to the team.

The pause was long, almost uncomfortably so. Ron Washington, the Texas Rangers' manager, was asked his pick for American League most valuable player. He thought and thought and thought some more, well aware he and the Rangers were playing in Anaheim. "Three guys," Washington said. "One, that kid y'all have over here, Trout. Is it Trout?" Yes, Mike Trout. Washington followed with the stars of his team, Adrian Beltre and Josh Hamilton. Someone asked about Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers.

Patience often pays off when waiting for the right pitch, and it also can pay off in home selling. Texas Ranger third baseman Adrian Beltre and his wife, Sandra, have sold their 4-acre-plus estate in Bradbury for $17,410,961, according to the Multiple Listing Service. The couple listed their custom house nearly two years ago at $19.8 million. The newly built Mediterranean, designed for both formal entertaining and casual indoor-outdoor living, includes such custom features as a 2,500-square-foot rec room outfitted as a batting cage.
