Rangers designated hitter Michael Young said that he will play Thursday in the series finale against the Angels after tweaking his right hamstring in the ninth inning of the Rangers' 9-8 loss Wednesday.
He said that he slipped on second base after doubling with two outs, and was removed for pinch-runner Craig Gentry. Young's leg was wrapped in ice after the game.
"Had it been earlier in the game, I wouldn't have come out," Young said. "That was a big run, and I didn't want to take any chances."
