Leonys Martin, who has missed the past several games after injuring his wrist while diving for a ball against Houston on Monday, is back in the lineup today.  Shin-Soo Choo, who has been hitting extremely well since taking two straight games off, is staying in the leadoff spot, however.

The lineup:

Choo -- RF

Elvis -- SS

Fielder -- DH

Beltre -- 3B

Blanks -- 1B

Peguero -- LF

Leonys -- CF

Chirinos -- C

Rosales -- 2B

Ross Detwiler starts for Texas, and Matt Andriese starts for the Rays.
