Worth noting

• Adrian Beltre, who has some inflammation in his left shoulder, was at designated hitter for the second straight game on Friday. Manager Ron Washington said Beltre will probably start at third base on Saturday.

• Washington also said he would like to get Jurickson Profar in the lineup on Saturday against left-hander Jason Vargas. Profar is a switch-hitter, and this will be his first chance to hit right-handed since being called up at the beginning of the month.

• The Dempster Family Foundation 22q Mystery Bus was at the Ballpark in Arlington on Friday night. The 22q Mystery Bus has been traveling the country to raise awareness of the little known disorder, called 22q11.2 deletion (or 22q, as it is sometimes called). Rangers pitcher Ryan Dempster's Family Foundation is bringing the bus to Texas to help shine the light on this disorder. It is open to the public before and after the game.
