OAKLAND, Calif. -- Adrian Beltre is back in the lineup tonight and said his shoulder is feeling better. Beltre came out in the seventh inning after aggravating a left shoulder strain that occurred diving to a ball in the ninth inning of the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. Beltre said he's ready to play but will do so as the DH. Manager Ron Washington said that's just a precaution and both Washington and Beltre said the third baseman will be ready for the postseason.
