MILWAUKEE -- Texas Rangers catcher A.J. Pierzynski was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup with tightness in his right oblique.

PODCAST
Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland joins GAC from Milwaukee to discuss what it was like facing former teammate Scott Feldman, Texas' upcoming series and more.

Listen Listen
Pierzynski only started one game in last week's three-game set against the Chicago White Sox because of the sore oblique, but started all three against the Boston Red Sox over the weekend.

Manager Ron Washington sat Pierzynski on Monday, a day after a four-strikeout performance, saying it was only a day off.

Pierzynski has put up a .263/.297/.411 line on the season and hit four home runs. Geovany Soto will replace Pierzynski in Tuesday's lineup and hit sixth against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Here are the lineups:
