Lineup change: Elvis Andrus at SS, Young DH

8/23/2012

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers made a late lineup change, inserting Elvis Andrus at shortstop and moving Michael Young back to designated hitter. The order stays the same.

Young's wife, Cristina Barbosa, is close to giving birth to the couple's third child, so Young was with her for most of the day and is on call to be there whenever she goes into labor. So he'll be the DH and if something happens, manager Ron Washington will make a switch.

Young has two sons, Mateo and Emilio.

The lineup:

RANGERS

2B Ian Kinsler

SS Elvis Andrus

CF Josh Hamilton (L)

3B Adrian Beltre

RF Nelson Cruz

DH Michael Young

LF David Murphy (L)

C Geovany Soto

1B Mike Olt
