Engel Beltre in CF, Jurickson Profar in LF today

The Rangers trot out another unusual lineup today, as David Murphy and Leonys Martin sit against a lefthanded pitcher


The Rangers, with a three man bench and a lack of righthanded hitters right now, have another unusual lineup today, with Jurickson Profar in left field, Engel Beltre in center field, and A.J. Pierzynski DHing. The fact that Pierzynski is the DH against a lefty, while righthanded hitting Robinson Chirinos is sitting, would appear to speak to Wash's lack of faith in Chirinos at this point.

David Murphy and Leonys Martin are each getting the day off, with the lefty on the mound. The lineup:

Kinsler -- 2B

Profar -- LF

Cruz -- RF

A. Beltre -- 3B

Pierzynski -- DH

Elvis -- SS

Moreland -- 1B

Soto -- C

E. Beltre -- CF

Josh Lindblom is pitching.
