Texas Rangers Vs. Arizona Diamondbacks: Wednesday Night Lineups

For the second consecutive night, the Texas Rangers will be without slugger Nelson Cruz in the lineup. Cruz was held out of Tuesday's starting lineup because of flu-like symptoms, and he'll get the night off again on Wednesday.

Both Ron Washington and Kirk Gibson have announced the starting lineups for Wednesday night's contest, and they are as follows:

Arizona Diamondbacks

SS Willie Bloomquist
2B Aaron Hill
RF Justin Upton
1B Paul Goldschmidt
DH Jason Kubel
CF Chris Young
C Miguel Montero
3B Ryan Roberts
LF Garardo Parra

SP Wade Miley

Texas Rangers

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

SP Matt Harrison

Aside from Cruz' omission from the lineup, Napoli at first base is notable, as Torrealba gets the start behind the plate. Snyder is taking Cruz' place in the lineup.
