Rangers Lineup For Tuesday, 5/31

The Rangers will attack righty Alex Cobb with the following lineup:

1. Ian Kinsler – DH
2. Andres Blanco – SS
3. Josh Hamilton – LF
4. Michael Young – 2B
5. Adrian Beltre – 3B
6. Nelson Cruz – RF
7. Mitch Moreland – 1B
8. Mike Napoli – C
9. Endy Chavez – CF

Jeff Wilson says that Andrus is being held out with a sort left foot. By the superstitious ‘lineup is a creature unto itself’ theory, Blanco must hit in his reserved spot so as to not disturb The Others beyond the North Wall.

Ron Washington continues to ride Napoli’s hot hand behind the plate and Chavez’s similarily hot bat. Jamey Newberg tweets that Julio Borbon has in fact moved from Frisco to Round Rock, with the RoughRiders headed out on a road trip.

Tonght’s Rangers starter C.J. Wilson says that he is ready to #throwstrikes.
