Arlington, TX, United States (4E Sports) - The Texas Rangers have activated third baseman Adrian Beltre in time for their Friday's showdown against the Seattle Mariners.

Beltre, who is hitting .286 with three doubles, no homers and four RBIs in eight games, injured his left quad on April 8 in Boston, and an MRI showed a mild strain.

The club decided to be sure Beltre was fully healthy and put him on the DL retroactively on April 13.

At the same time, the Rangers placed infielder Kevin Kouzmanoff, who started at third base in Beltre's absence, on the 15-day disabled list with a herniated disk in his lower back.

Kouzmanoff returned to Dallas Thursday to be checked by back specialist Dr. Drew Dossett, and the decision was made to put him on the DL.

Kouzmanoff was solid in Beltre's place, hitting .362 (17-for-42) with two homers, six doubles and 10 RBIs in 13 games after starting the season at Triple-A Round Rock. He was the AL Player of the Week last week.

Kouzmanoff left Tuesday's game in Oakland with lower back tightness.
