Justin Smoak batting sixth; Nelson Cruz not batting

Justin Smoak's big-league debut tonight will come from the No. 6 spot in the lineup. The Rangers are also giving Nelson Cruz the night off, although he is available to pinch hit. Cruz said his hamstring tightened up on him Thursday night when he scored in the seventh inning against Boston.

Here is the lineup vs. Detroit, with Rich Harden pitching for Texas.

1, Elvis Andrus; 2, Michael Young; 3, Josh Hamilton; 4, Vladimir Guerrero; 5, David Murphy; 6, Justin Smoak; 7, Matt Treanor; 8, Andres Blanco; 9, Julio Borbon.
