Texas Rangers Lineup & Updates

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Lots of changes tonight Delino DeShields is back at lead off and left field, Elvis hitting 2nd, Carlos Gomez hitting 3rd, Ryan Rua is playing first base with Shin-Soo Choo batting in the 9 spot.

Additionally, a few updates on various items:

T.R. Sullivan notes that Adrian Beltre isn’t recovering from his injury as fast as they’d like. I’m almost exactly a year older than Adrian Beltre and I agree that getting old sucks.

Jeff Wilson notes that Sam Dyson may be activated soon. No word on which Sam Dyson will return, the excellent reliever of the last two years or the giant bag of gasoline in a pitcher shaped body we’ve seen this year.

And finally, John Blake notes that Nick Martinez will be starting again Friday while A.J. Griffin continues to rehab.

EDIT: And ab03 linked an article by Evan Grant with more details about Adrian Beltre’s recovery process taking longer than expected.
