The Rangers have placed shortstop Elvis Andrus on the Paternity Leave List, due to his wife being due to have a child in the immediate future. Elvis can miss up to 72 hours while on the Paternity Leave List, which means he will be re-activated by Saturday.

To replace Elvis on the active roster, the Rangers have recalled shortstop Jurickson Profar from AAA Round Rock, and have him in the lineup at shortstop today.

The lineup:

Choo — RF

Gomez -- CF

Mazara — LF

Beltre — 3B

Odor — 2B

Napoli -- DH

Profar — SS

Lucroy — C

Gallo — 1B

Andrew Cashner is on the mound for the Rangers, facing Doug Fister.
