The Rangers face their third lefty in a row today, with Carlos Rodon going for the ChiSox, but have opted to return to their "regular" lineup, with Ryan Rua, who has been starting against most lefties, on the bench.  Its a bit surprising to me, since Rodon has allowed an 804 OPS against righthanders in his career, compared to holding lefties to a 510 OPS.

The lineup:

DeShields -- CF

Mazara -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Desmond -- LF

Moreland -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Odor -- 2B

Holaday -- C

Colby Lewis is on the mound for the Rangers.
