ARLINGTON, Texas -- Third baseman Adrian Beltre is a late addition to the Texas Rangers lineup for Game 4 of the AL Division Series.

Beltre wasn't in manager Jeff Banister's initial starting lineup. But about an hour before the start of Monday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Rangers announced that Beltre will start at third base and bat third.

Beltre missed Games 2 and 3 after exiting early from the series opener Thursday with a strained lower back.

Banister had said earlier Monday that Beltre had taken soft-toss swings in the batting cage, but that running was "most problematic" for Beltre.

Texas leads the best-of-five series 2-1. The Blue Jays have to win Monday to force a deciding Game 5 in Toronto.
