Texas Rangers lineup for August 6, 2020 against the Oakland A’s — starting pitchers are Mike Minor for the Rangers and Mike Fiers for the A’s.

Texas is trying to avoid being swept today, but that’s not what is interesting today — what is noteworthy is that Anderson Tejeda is making his major league debut, starting at second base. Tejeda hasn’t played above A-ball, but is a strong defender with power. He was added to the 40 man roster this offseason.

Also noteworthy is that Jeff Mathis is catching Mike Minor again. Robinson Chirinos caught Minor last time out, when Minor gave up six runs, and I would wager Mathis will be catching Minor going forward.

The lineup:

Choo — DH

Elvis — SS

Calhoun — LF

Gallo — RF

Frazier — 1B

Solak — CF

IKF — 3B

Tejeda — 2B

Mathis — C
