ARLINGTON, Texas -- All-Star rookie third baseman Josh Jung was back in the starting lineup for the playoff-chasing Texas Rangers on Monday night after missing six weeks with a fractured left thumb.

Manager Bruce Bochy, after watching Jung go through a live batting practice, said he would be playing third base and hitting fifth in the opener of their home series against the Boston Red Sox.

The Rangers hadn't made any official roster moves while also waiting to see how All-Star right fielder Adolis Garcia got through pregame drills in the outfield. Bochy said Garcia also looked good in BP, would meet with doctors before the game and that there was the possibility he could play as well.

After being swept in three games at Cleveland over the weekend, the Rangers opened their final homestand 1 games behind AL West-leading Houston. They had a one-game lead over division opponent Seattle for the American League's third and final wild-card spot. Texas will play seven of its last 10 games against the Mariners.
