Analysis: General manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that team physician Dr. Keith Meister was ''pleasantly surprised'' that the strain wasn't as severe as initially thought. Beltre came out of Tuesday's game at Boston, then returned home for the exam and an MRI. The Rangers were off Thursday off before a 10-day homestand. Daniels said the team will ''play it conservatively'' over the next few days.
