Texas Rangers Saturday lineup has backup vibe

A lot of reserves in today’s lineup for the Rangers

MLB: Texas Rangers-Media Day Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

With Opening Day just five days away, the Rangers are reaching the end of their spring training schedule, and today’s lineup is likely one of the last reserve-heavy groups you’ll see until September.

The lineup:

DeShields — CF

Robinson — DH

Elvis -- SS

Mazara — RF

Rua — LF

Odor — 2B

Profar — 3B

Hood — 1B

Nicholas — C

Cole Hamels is on the mound for his final outing before starting on Opening Day.

UPDATE — Michael Ohlman was originally in the lineup, but has been traded to Boston, so Brett Nicholas is now in the lineup at catcher instead.
