DeShields sits in series finale

Ryan Rua gets the start in left field as Texas looks to avoid the sweep

MLB: Texas Rangers at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers look to avoid the sweep in Toronto today, and Ryan Rua is starting in left field. Delino DeShields reportedly is dealing with back issues, and per the post that went up a few minutes before this one, Drew Robinson is apparently in Toronto (though not yet activated) in case the Rangers need another outfielder.

The lineup:

Choo — DH

Elvis — SS

Mazara -- RF

Lucroy -- C

Odor — 2B

Napoli -- 1B

Gallo -- 3B

Rua — LF

Hoying -- CF

Andrew Cashner starts for Texas.
