Rangers Vs. Astros: Rangers Wednesday Lineup

Per Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Vs. RHP Brett Meyers

  1. 2B Ian Kinsler
  2. CF Endy Chavez
  3. LF Josh Hamilton
  4. DH Adrian Beltre
  5. 3B Michael Young
  6. RF Nelson Cruz
  7. 1B Mitch Moreland
  8. C Yorvit Torrealba
  9. SS Andres Blanco

Elvis Andrus gets a day off, and Beltre moves to DH, giving Young his first time at third base this season. This weakens the Rangers defensively at both spots on the left side of the infield at once. No word on why both Beltre and Andrus needed the same day off, instead of staggering them.
