Lineups: Michael Young returns; Mike Olt in RF


Rangers veteran Michael Young is back in the lineup after a day off on

Wednesday. Young had his first day off since June 10 for what manager Ron

Washington says was a combination of physical and mental rest.

Young has struggled through a power outtage of late. He last homered May 7

against Baltimore.

Also, rookie Mike Olt is making his first career start in the outfield. He will

play right field on Thursday as the Rangers look to avoid a sweep in the Bronx.

Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler will get the day off, and Josh Hamilton will serve as Washington's DH.
