Adrian Beltre will start at third base in Friday's Wild Card game against the Orioles.

Beltre was the DH for the final three games of the regular season due to a strained left shoulder, but he's ready to get back on the field. Michael Young will play first base while Mike Napoli will serve as the DH and Geovany Soto will catch Yu Darvish. Craig Gentry will start in center field while Josh Hamilton plays left. David Murphy will take a seat with left-hander Joe Saunders on the mound for the Orioles.
