The Texas Rangers look to rebound from last night’s loss, and for just the second time this season, Jeff Banister has Joey Gallo in the starting lineup in left field.

Banister had said just a few days ago that Gallo would likely not be used in the outfield, due to the hamstring issue he has been battling all year.

The lineup:

Choo — DH

Elvis — SS

Mazara -- RF

Beltre — 3B

Napoli — 1B

Odor — 2B

Lucroy — C

Gomez — CF

Gallo — 1B LF
