Adrian Beltre not in lineup
Adrian Beltre will not play Sunday against the Royals due to a mild strain in his left hamstring.
He suffered the injury Saturday on the bases in the fourth. The Rangers don’t believe the injury is serious. He’s listed as day-to-day and could return this week.
Jeff Baker will start at third and bat sixth in the lineup. A.J. Pierzynski will get the day off, and Geovany Soto will start at catcher. Craig Gentry will start in center field.
