Adrian Beltre is getting as much of a day off as he will allow manager Ron Washington to give him. He's the Rangers' designated hitter as the Rangers open a three-game series at Anaheim, which is trying to gain some serious ground both in the wild-card race and the AL West standings. Michael Young will play third, and Mike Napoli will catch against his former team.
