Adrian Beltre played just one season for the Red Sox, in 2010, but made an immediate impact on the club during his short tenure in Boston. Beltre hit .321 with 28 home runs and 102 RBIs in 2010 and was named to the AL All-Star team. After signing Adrian Gonzalez to play first base in 2011, and shifting Kevin Youkilis back to third base, the Red Sox parted ways with Beltre, who went on to sign with the Texas Rangers, where he has played since 2011.
Since leaving Boston, Beltre has been outstanding for Texas, having played in two All-Star games, won two Gold Gloves, won a Silver Slugger, and helped Texas to the 2011 World Series, in which the Rangers were one strike away from winning two different times. Through the first half of 2013, Beltre is hitting .296 with 14 home runs and 42 RBIs for Texas.
