Tuesday pregame Rangers notes

Elvis Andrus said that he will be in the starting lineup Wednesday for the series finale at Tampa Bay after getting a day today to rest is left foot. Michael Young spiked Andrus on Monday as they converged on a chopper up the middle. Andrus said that the swelling in the foot has gone way down and there is more range of motion. Andrus wanted to play tonight.

Mike Napoli is catching again because, as manager Ron Washington said, he's 7 for 12 the past the past three games. Yorvit Torreabla, though, will catch Wednesday. Expect Napoli in the lineup at first base with left-hander David Price pitching for the Rays.

Manager Ron Washington refused to play the "what-if" game concerning Endy Chavez and Julio Borbon.  Borbon (left hamstring) has played one game on his rehab assignment and won't return until after this road trip.

Either right-hander Dave Bush or lefty Michael Kirkman will start Thursday at Cleveland if a blister prevents Matt Harrison from making his scheduled start. Harrison threw a bullpen session a few moments ago, a sign that he should be able to go Thursday.
