Ron Washington announced his lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Toronto Blue Jays, and once again, Texas' slugging catcher is out of the lineup. Mike Napoli missed Friday's game because of a stomach bug, and he'll be sitting out Saturday as well.
SP, Colby Lewis
If the Rangers have an offensive outburst even half as strong as Friday night's, when they scored 14 against Toronto, then the Rangers shouldn't even miss Napoli one bit while he recovers from his stomach bug. As we mentioned earlier here at SB Nation Dallas, Alvarez' K/9 is a measly 2.70, so Texas should have no problem putting the ball in play on Saturday afternoon.
