Lineups: Michael Young returns; Mike Olt in RF

By Ian Begley /

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.
