Sigh. There’s no more Yu Darvish. The Rangers are pretty much done for 2017. And yet, there are two more months of games remaining, including a game tonight against Baltimore Seattle. (ed. note — I can’t remember who they are playing anymore).

Brett Nicholas, who is now the team’s backup catcher with Jonathan Lucroy being dealt, is getting the start behind the plate today.

The lineup:

Choo -- DH

Elvis — SS

Mazara — RF

Beltre — 3B

Odor — 2B

Napoli — 1B

Gallo — LF

Gomez -- CF

Nicholas -- C

Nick Martinez is on the mound for Texas tonight.
