Jeff Banister sticks with usual lineup in pursuit of sweep

Texas is going for the sweep against Detroit today, and Jeff Banister is sticking with his regulars

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers are going for the sweep today against the Detroit Tigers, and Jeff Banister is rolling with his regulars in this getaway day game.

The lineup:

Odor -- 2B

Mazara -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Desmond -- LF

Moreland -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Wilson -- C

DeShields -- CF

Martin Perez pitches for Texas, facing off against Justin Verlander for the Tigers.

Meanwhile, it appears likely that A.J. Griffin is heading to the disabled list, as Jeff Wilson says that Alex Claudio is in the Rangers clubhouse.  Claudio, who was optioned yesterday for Drew Stubbs, can't be recalled for the next ten days unless a player goes on the d.l.
