Nicholas, DeShields both starting against Toronto

Brett Nicholas is behind the plate again today, and Delino DeShields is playing center and batting ninth

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

There was speculation yesterday that, after a bad baserunning decision and a questionable break on a ball that fell in center, Delino DeShields might be on the bench today; however, Jeff Banister is sticking with him, and is going with Brett Nicholas again today as well.

The lineup:

Odor -- 2B

Mazara -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Desmond -- LF

Moreland -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Nicholas -- C

DeShields -- CF

Martin Perez is on the mound for Texas, facing off against Marco Estrada.
