Adrian Beltre

Texas is in a selling mood, but they might be stuck with one of their all-time greats. Adrian Beltre is having another really good season in Texas hitting .292 with 19 extra-base hits, and his trade stock is noticable.

However, Beltre seems unwilling to waive his no-trade rights and accept a deal despite playing the sixth most games out of any player to not win a World Series behind Carl Yastrzemski, Ty Cobb, Barry Bonds, Omar Vizquel and Rusty Staub, per Jon Morosi.

Many of his teammates have already been moved, notably Cole Hamels and Keone Kela. Teams are interested in Beltre’s services and he’d make a ton of sense for the Phillies, but it doesn’t sound like anything will come of this.
