ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton is not in the lineup for tonight's game against the Chicago White Sox.

Club officials said there is nothing physically wrong with Hamilton and that the move is just a chance to get him a break -- both mental and physical. We should have a better idea why that is once manager Ron Washington talks later.

Adrian Beltre moves to third with Nelson Cruz as the cleanup hitter. Here's the full lineup:

2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
3B Adrian Beltre
RF Nelson Cruz
DH David Murphy
1B Michael Young
C Mike Napoli
LF Leonys Martin
CF Craig Gentry
