Rangers Vs. A's: Saturday Athletics Lineup

Per Anthony Andro, Fox Sports Southwest.

Vs. RHP Alexi Ogando

  1. 2B Jemile Weeks
  2. SS Cliff Pennington
  3. DH Hidek Matsui
  4. LF Josh Willingham
  5. RF David DeJesus
  6. CF Ryan Sweeney
  7. 1B Brandon Allen
  8. C Kurt Suzuki
  9. 3B Eric Sogard

Oakland is stacking the deck against Ogando heavily, with five lefties and three switch hitters. On the plus side, only Coco Crisp has shown a superior split against right handed pitching among the switch hitters, but that superior split is more than 100 points gained in OPS.
