ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers have put third baseman Adrian Beltre on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quad.

Texas made the move just before Sunday's game, when they added newly acquired right-hander Hector Noesi to the roster.

Beltre hasn't played since coming out of Tuesday's game at Boston. His DL move is retroactive to Wednesday, and he could be eligible to come off the DL as early as April 24, a day off for Texas.

The Rangers are being cautious with Beltre, who manager Ron Washington said came out of a workout Saturday with no issues.

Noesi was acquired Saturday from Seattle for a player to be named or cash. He was designated for assignment April 4.
