DH Michael Young is getting a day off on Tuesday. He is not getting a demotion in the Rangers' lineup.

Manager Ron Washington was adamant that Young's day was a normal respite and that he will not be dropped from the No. 5 spot, even though his production there has been among the worst in the majors.

"Nooooooooo," Washington replied when asked if he is considering moving Young down a spot in the lineup after the off day. "This is the way our lineup runs and I'm going to keep running with it. You have got to make adjustments in this game and he will make them. This [slump] has just lasted a little longer than others.I have a feeling he'll come out of it, just when we need it most."
