Engel Beltre is making his seventh start of the season and batting in the two-hole for the first time in his career.
Manager Ron Washington originally had Elvis Andrus batting second, but didn't want a string of left-handers at the bottom of the order which is why he made the switch. Beltre is playing in left field and Leonys Martin is starting in center, although that could change by gametime.
