Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre said the strained left hamstring that knocked him out of Saturday's opener of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers does not seem as debilitating as a similar injury last season.

Beltre missed 37 games last season because of a strained left hamstring. Beltre said he hopes to miss only about four games because of the latest injury.

``I don't think it's quite as bad like last year,'' Beltre said after the 10-4 win over Detroit. ``Hopefully it will be a couple of days, two to four days, but who knows? I don't think the weather is helping. It'll be warmer at home.''

The first-pitch temperature was 43 degrees. The Rangers return to warmer conditions in Arlington on Monday for the opener of a series against the New York Yankees. Beltre likely will miss the entire three-game series.
