Beltre in, Napoli sitting against R.A. Dickey today

With knuckleballer R.A. Dickey pitching for the Jays, both Adrian Beltre and Mike Napoli are on the bench (no, wait, Beltre is a late addition to the lineup)

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The lineups are up for today's Game 4 of the ALDS in Arlington between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays, and Adrian Beltre is on the bench once again with a bad back.

Interestingly, Mike Napoli is also sitting...with Mitch Moreland and Prince Fielder struggling so far in this series, and righthanders hitting Dickey better than lefties over the past two seasons, I thought Napoli, who had a big game against David Price in Game 1, might get the nod in the starting lineup.

The full lineups:

UPDATE -- Beltre is now in the lineup at 3B.  New lineup:

DeShields -- CF

Choo -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Moreland -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Hamilton -- LF

Odor -- 2B

Chirinos -- C
