While there will be a couple of intrasquad games on Sunday and Monday (whether weather permitting), the Rangers' official spring opener will be Wednesday, with Colby Lewis getting the nod to make the start.

Also pitching on Wednesday will be Yovani Gallardo, Lisalverto Bonilla, and Chi Chi Gonzalez, with the plan being for each pitcher to throw two innings.  Among the other veteran starters, Yu Darvish and Derek Holland are both scheduled to pitch tomorrow in the intrasquad game.
