Yesterday, Ron Washington dropped Leonys Martin from the leadoff spot to the #9 spot in the lineup, and put Jurickson Profar in the top spot in Leonys's place.

Today, the Rangers are going with their third leadoff hitter in three days, as Ian Kinsler is hitting leadoff again as the Rangers roll with their righty-heavy lineup against lefthanded starter Jason Vargas.

The lineup:

Kinsler -- 2B

Elvis -- SS

Rios -- RF

Beltre -- DH

Baker -- 1B

Soto -- C

Gentry -- LF

Profar -- 3B

Leonys -- CF

Nick Tepesch pitches for Texas.
