Duffy outrighted, young 'uns in the lineup tonight

The Rangers have outrighted Matt Duffy today, and Jurickson Profar starts in left field tonight

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers have announced that Matt Duffy, designated for assignment earlier this week, has cleared waivers and been outrighted to AAA Round Rock.  In addition, Justin Ruggiano, released just a couple of days ago, has been signed by the New York Mets and added to their 25 man roster, leading me to wonder if Ruggiano's release was requested by Ruggiano, versus the Rangers deciding to cut him loose.

Anyway, tonight's lineup is very similar looking to yesterday's lineup, with quite a few of the young players starting.

Tonight's lineup:

Profar -- LF

Mazara -- RF

Desmond -- CF

Beltre -- 3B

Odor -- 2B

Moreland -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Gallo -- DH

Wilson -- C

Martin Perez is on the mound, facing off against Ian Kennedy.
