Texas Rangers Friday lineup features another Juan Centeno start

The Rangers kick off a series in Toronto today, and Juan Centeno is behind the plate again

MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers begin a three game set in Toronto tonight, and Jeff Banister is using Juan Centeno as the starting catcher for tonight’s game, Centeno’s second start in a row. I’m not sure if Robinson Chirinos is banged up, or if Bartolo Colon, tomorrow’s starting pitcher, prefers pitching to Chirinos, and thus Chirinos is sitting so he won’t be starting a day game after a night game.

In any case...the lineup:

DeShields — CF

Choo — DH

Profar — SS

Mazara — RF

Gallo — LF

Kiner-Falefa — 3B

Guzman — 1B

Centeno — C

Robinson — 2B

Mike Minor pitches for Texas.
