Butler, Baker among starters today

With lefty Matt Moore on the hill for the Rays, Joey Butler and Jeff Baker are both in the starting lineup for Texas

The Rangers look to split their four game series in Tampa today, and with lefty Matt Moore pitching for the Rays, Ron Washington is rolling out his righty-heavy lineup.

As we discussed earlier, Jeff Baker cannot play in the field right now because of a groin issue, meaning that he's limited to DH duties.  With Baker unavailable to play first base, as he normally does against lefties, Mitch Moreland is playing first.  In addition, Joey Butler is making an appearance, manning left field.

The lineup:

Kinsler -- 2B

Elvis -- SS

Rios -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Baker -- DH

Soto -- C

Gentry -- CF

Butler -- LF

Moreland -- 1B

Yu Darvish is pitching.
