Rangers rework Beltre's deal, eliminate right to void 2016

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Adrian Beltre and the Texas Rangers have reworked the final two seasons of the third baseman's $96 million, six-year contract, eliminating the team's conditional right to void his 2016 salary.
 
Beltre was due to be paid $18 million this year and $16 million in 2016, but the team had the right to void 2016 if the four-time All-Star and Gold Glove winner didn't have at least 586 plate appearances this season.
 
Under the amendment announced Monday, Beltre is guaranteed $16 million this year and $18 million in 2016.
 
The 35-year-old made $17 million last season, when he hit .324 with 19 homers and 77 RBIs.
