Apparently, four days off for the All Star Break weren't enough to get Shin-Soo Choo back to full health, as he is on the bench to start this afternoon's game against the Chicago Cubs.  It appears to be due to a stiff back that he's been dealing with.

The lineup:

Odor -- 2B

Desmond -- CF

Mazara -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- 1B

Rua -- LF

Elvis -- SS

Chirinos -- C

Perez -- P

Kyle Hendricks starts for the Cubs.
