Choo in right field behind Cole Hamels

Jeff Banister has Nomar Mazara at DH and Shin-Soo Choo in RF today

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers have game two against the Houston Astros today, and Jeff Banister has opted to put Shin-Soo Choo in right field, with Nomar Mazara at DH. Mazara made an error yesterday, dropping a fly ball that resulted in a run scoring...I’m not sure if that contributed to the decision, or if this is just a way to get Choo engaged and in the field, but regardless, Mazara is not playing in the field this evening.

The lineup:

DeShields — LF

Choo — RF

Gomez -- CF

Odor — 2B

Napoli — 1B

Gallo -- 3B

Elvis — SS

Mazara — DH

Lucroy -- C

Cole Hamels is on the mound.
