SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The Texas Rangers still believe third baseman Adrian Beltre is a 10- to 14-day injury and they expect he'll be ready to play around March 10.

A report surfaced Saturday night that suggested Beltre's calf strain could keep him out up to a month and put him in jeopardy of missing the regular-season opener on April 1. The Rangers don't believe that to be the case.

"[We] still feel it's two weeks," Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said Sunday morning.

Other injury news:

*Pitcher Eric Hurley (left hamstring strain) will throw live batting practice today.

*Pitcher Brandon Webb (shoulder) will throw off a mound later today for the first time since the start of camp.

*OF Craig Gentry (broken right wrist) will take live batting practice today and will continue to do so until he's ready to test it in a game situation. A timetable remains uncertain, but the club expects he will be ready to play somewhere by April 1.

*Also, Levine said he expects the club to come to terms with Pedro Strop today.
