With Prince Fielder sidelined for at least two games, manager Ron Washington had to adjust his lineup once again. He opted to go with Shin-Soo Choo in the three-hole and Michael Choice in the leadoff spot.

Washington pushed Alex Rios up in the lineup earlier this season when Adrian Beltre landed on the disabled list, but said he wants to keep Rios in the fifth-spot where he is more comfortable.

Here are the lineups:

Texas -- 1. Michael Choice, rf; 2. Elvis Andrus, ss; 3. Shin-Soo Choo, lf; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Alex Rios, dh; 6. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 7. Robinson Chirinos, c; 8. Leonys Martin, cf; 9. Luis Sardinas, 2b.

LHP Robbie Ross, Jr. (1-4, 5.04 ERA)

Toronto -- 1. Jose Reyes, ss; 2. Melky Cabrera, dh; 3. Jose Bautista, rf; 4. Edwin Encarnacion, 1b; 5. Brett Lawrie, 3b; 6. Dioner Navarro, c; 7. Steve Tolleson, 2b; 8. Kevin Pillar, lf; 9. Anthony Gose, cf.

LHP Mark Buehrle (7-1, 2.04 ERA)
