During his weekend appearance at the Texas Rangers' FanFest, third baseman Adrian Beltre said he has had a calm off-season, resting and focusing on getting his troublesome left leg back to full strength. Various muscle problems forced Beltre to play on one good leg during the second half. Beltre forgot one detail about his down time. He finally unloaded his mansion outside Los Angeles and made a tidy profit in the process. According to the Los Angeles Times, Beltre sold a four-acre estate in Bradbury, Calif., for $17.4 million to Lynsi Martinez, whose grandparents founded the In-N-Out hamburger chain in 1948. The home had been on the market for about two years, at an asking price of $19.8 million. Beltre and his wife, Sandra, purchased the mansion in 2006 for $3.425 million. This is no fixer-upper. According to the Times, the main house is 16,000 square feet and has a 35-foot-high painted ceiling at the entry. A 2,500-square-foot guesthouse includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a 1,300-square-foot cabana has a kitchen. Outdoor amenities include an infinity pool, a tennis court, a basketball court, two tees and two putting greens with sand traps. There are seven bedrooms and 17 bathrooms on the property. Beltre likely kept his swing sharp in a 2,500-square-foot recreation room outfitted as a batting cage. No word as to the new digs for the Beltres.
