Lineups: First intrasquad game of spring
|Joe Trahan and Calvin Watkins debate who should be the Rangers' Opening Day starter: Yu Darvish or Matt Harrison?
Lance Berkman and Adrian Beltre aren't expected to play. The club wants to take things easy on both of them with Berkman still strengthening his knees and Beltre dealing with some mild right calf inflammation. If it was a regular season game, both would play.
Here are the lineups for the game:
2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
C A.J. Pierzynski
RF Nelson Cruz
LF David Murphy
1B Mitch Moreland
CF Leonys Martin
3B Yangervis Solarte
DH Jim Adduci
SS Jurickson Profar
CF Craig Gentry
C Geovany Soto
3B Mike Olt
1B Jeff Baker
DH Brandon Allen
LF Julio Borbon
RF Engel Beltre
2B Leury Garcia
