Kansas City vs. RHP Colby Lewis

The Rangers continue to make certain Josh Hamilton stays healthy and eases back in to the lineup via DH, but that means more sketchy defensive lineups, with Murphy in center and Moreland in right, until Borbon can come back. This could be interesting with the fly ball-friendly Lewis facing a lineup with five lefties (including switch hitters).
