Tuesday's lineups: Rangers vs. Rays

The Texas Rangers made some moves before the rosters expand on Sept. 1. Leonys Martin has been recalled with Nelson Cruz headed to the disabled list. And Mark Hamburger had his contract purchased with Darren O'Day landing on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

The Hamburger move was necessary to give Ron Washington a longman with Scott Feldman making a spot start tonight. Feldman will be on an 80-90 pitch count, and Washington hopes that's good enough for seven innings. Here's how the lineups look for the three-game series opener against the Rays.

Texas Rangers

1. Ian Kinsler (2B)

2. Elvis Andrus (SS)

3. Josh Hamilton (LF)

4. Michael Young (3B)

5. Mike Napoli (DH)

6. David Murphy (RF)

7. Yorvit Torrealba (C)

8. Mitch Moreland (1B)

9. Endy Chavez (CF)

P -- Scott Feldman (0-0, 3.94 ERA)

Tampa Bay Rays

1. Desmond Jennings (LF)

2. Johnny Damon (DH)

3. Evan Longoria (3B)

4. Ben Zobrist (2B)

5. Casey Kotchman (1B)

7. Matt Joyce (RF)

8. Kelly Shoppach (C)
