Usually the Rangers announce their lineup around 3:00 pm for a 7:00 pm start. Today, things dragged on until a few hours before the start of the game. The reason for the wait appears to be because Adrian Beltre is back!

Here's tonight's lineup:

Beltre's return comes as a surprise as it was thought that he would need more time to be able to grip a bat without pain. However, word on Twitter was that he took BP this afternoon and I guess was able to convince the team that he's ready.

Reliever Jon Edwards was optioned back to Round Rock to make room for Beltre on the roster. Also, Shin-Soo Choo is day-to-day with back spasms.

Joey Gallo and Adrian Beltre are in the same lineup!!
