MLB: Seattle Mariners at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers look to make it two in a row against the Seattle Mariners tonight, and Willie Calhoun is making his major league debut, hitting 7th and playing left field. Despite a lefty starting for the M’s, Mike Napoli is on the bench, as he is apparently dealing with an ankle problem.

The lineup:

DeShields -- CF

Choo — RF

Elvis -- SS

Mazara — DH

Gallo -- 3B

Chirinos -- C

Calhoun -- LF

Odor -- 2B

Rua — 1B

Miguel Gonzalez pitches for Texas.
