Texas Rangers Vs. Los Angeles Angels: Saturday Starting Lineups

C.J. Wilson against the Texas Rangers -- take two. On Saturday, Wilson will start for the second time in as many days against his former team. Both managers have announced their starting lineups for Saturday's game, and they are as follows:

Los Angeles Angels

Mike Trout, LF
Alberto Callaspo, 3B
Albert Pujols, DH
Torii Hunter, RF
Mark Trumbo, 1B
Howie Kendrick, 2B
Peter Bourjos, CF
Erick Aybar, SS
John Hester, C

C.J. Wilson, SP

Texas Rangers

Ian Kinsler, 2B
Elvis Andrus, SS
Josh Hamilton, LF
Adrian Beltre, DH
Michael Young, 3B
Nelson Cruz, RF
Mike Napoli, C
Brandon Snyder, 1B
Craig Gentry, CF

Matt Harrison, SP

It appears that Mike Scioscia will do anything to try to get Pujols going, as he'll be serving as Los Angeles' designated hitter on Saturday afternoon rather than starting at first base. Peter Bourjos returns to the lineup, as Vernon Wells finds himself on the bench.

For Texas, not much has changed, as Beltre is still serving as the designated hitter, though Napoli has shifted to catcher for Saturday's tilt, allowing Brandon Snyder to get the start at 1B.
