Rangers Vs. Blue Jays: Mike Napoli Out Of Lineup Again

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.

While Toronto's lineup has yet to be announced, here's who the Rangers will be sending out on the field on Saturday afternoon against Henderson Alvarez:

2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
DH Michael Young
LF David Murphy
RF Nelson Cruz
C Yorvit Torrealba
1B Mitch Moreland

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.
