Isiah Kiner-Falefa starts at third base in Adrian Beltre’s absence

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Andrew Dieb-USA TODAY Sports

Where once the Rangers had Joey Gallo at 1B, Rougned Odor at 2B, Elvis Andrus at SS, and Adrian Beltre at 3B, they now have Ronald Guzman at 1B, Drew Robinson at 2B, Jurickson Profar at SS, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa at 3B.

Between now and then, Profar was the second second baseman after Odor was hurt only to move to SS when Andrus went down. Kiner-Falefa became the third second baseman with Profar moving to SS only to become the second third baseman with Robinson becoming the fourth second baseman for the Rangers this season.

It’s not even May.

The lineup:

Delino DeShields - CF

Shin-Soo Choo - RF

Jurickson Profar - SS

Nomar Mazara - DH

Joey Gallo - LF

Isiah Kiner-Falefa - 3B

Ronald Guzman - 1B

Juan Centeno - C

Drew Robinson - 2B

Doug Fister was activated to make the start for Texas with Kendall Graveman set to pitch for Oakland. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
