Texas Rangers lineup for August 5, 2020 against the Oakland A’s: starting pitchers are Kyle Gibson for the Rangers and Sean Manaea for the A’s.

Texas did poorly against lefty Jesus Luzardo last night, and are facing another lefty today. Chris Woodward has plugged Shin-Soo Choo back into the lineup, while Adolis Garcia, who got the start last night (and who is 0 for 6 with a walk on the season), on the bench. If Garcia isn’t starting against a lefty, it doesn’t bode well for his chances of surviving the drop to 28 tomorrow.

The lineup:

Choo — LF

Elvis — SS

Gallo — RF

Frazier — 1B

Chirinos — C

Solak — 2B

IKF — 3B

Refsnyder — DH

Heineman — CF

8:05 Central start.
