The Rangers go for two in a row against the Yankees and Luis Severino today, and Jeff Banister has made some tweaks to the lineup, putting Nomar Mazara (who is nursing a quad issue) at DH, and slotting Will Middlebrooks at third base, with Mike Napoli on the bench.

The lineup:

DeShields — LF

Choo — RF

Elvis — SS

Mazara -- DH

Gomez -- CF

Gallo — 1B

Middlebrooks -- 3B

Odor — 2B

Nicholas -- C

Andrew Cashner is on the mound for Texas.
