The Texas Rangers finally announced their starting pitcher for tomorrow's series finale against the Angels. According to the beats, Anthony Ranaudo will be called up from Round Rock to make his Rangers' debut. No roster move will be made until tomorrow but you have to figure if Anthony Bass sees work out of the exhausted 'pen tonight, he'll be sent down for Ranaudo.

Also, the lineup for tonight's game has a makeover with Rougned Odor batting leadoff and Mitch Moreland hitting in the second spot.

Opening Day leadoff hitter Leonys Martin has slumped to begin the 2015 season (he's 2-28 in the last six games) and will hit 8th tonight. No word on if Martin has permanently lost the leadoff job but you can't blame manager Jeff Banister for shaking things up after a dismal first week at the plate.
