Rangers’ Adrian Beltre Not Happy With Yu Darvish Trade

Published

on

While the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrate their big haul at the MLB trade deadline when they acquired Texas Rangers’ ace Yu Darvish, Rangers’ Adrian Beltre is none-too-pleased.

“We’re not pleased with the trade,” Beltre told the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t think we are completely sold on the situation being [hopeless] for this year. It was a tough situation.

“I know he’s going to be a free agent and they were trying to get something. I try to understand the business side of it and I understand what they are doing, but on the baseball side you are not happy. That doesn’t matter. That’s not going to change our mentality.”

Texas may lose more than just Darvish with the move. Beltre noted that if the Rangers don’t plan to contend in 2018 it may effect his decision making process when his contract comes up.

“Yes, it absolutely would change my mind,” he said. “At this stage of my career, I’m not here for a rebuild. I don’t think it will be. I think there is a possibility of this team playing better. I’m still focused on this year and don’t want to think about it right now, but it would change things for me.”
