Per the beat reporters on Twitter, Ron Washington is mixing things up today as far as the starting lineup goes.

With Derek Holland getting the start against Twins lefty Pedro Hernandez, Ron Washington is swapping out the entire left side of his infield, with Leury Garcia getting the start at shortstop and Jeff Baker getting the start at third base.

Elvis Andrus is sitting, and Adrian Beltre will be at DH. That likely means that Lance Berkman is getting the day off, and David Murphy and Mitch Moreland will get a chance to show they can handle a lefty starting pitcher.
