Adrian Belt's return from the disability list was short-lived after the Texas Rangers stared another injury to hamstring.
Rangers (16-26) activated Beltre from 10-day performance list before May 8, the Detroit Tigers after missing two weeks left with a left-hand hamstring strain.
Belt worsened the injury during Sunday's loss for MLB World Series champion in Houston Astros and was placed back on the function list on Tuesday.
39-year-old finished in seventh innings after recording his third fault in five games since he was activated.
"Rough, because I did not feel backlash. I did not feel the hamster at all," said Beltre. "I tried to protect it all the time, because I knew it would take me a bit longer. Did not try hard on any game … Disappointed, of course, but nothing I can do now.
"Of course, when you worsen an earlier injury [it’s frustrating] Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. " With Adrian, he has been in these situations before. He manages them well. "
Four Star All-Star and Silver Slugger went one by two on the plate before injury and battles .314 this season in 29 matches.
