Yorvit Torrealba is the Rangers' starter at catcher in the series opener against Seattle after Mike Napoli had caught the previous three. Manager Ron Washington, though, refused to say that Napoli had moved ahead of Torrealba as the Rangers' primary catcher, saying that the Rangers need both guys to be successful. Torrealba, in fact, could start a second straight game Saturday, though Washington seems more inclined to use Napoli's hot bat. Adrian Beltre is the DH tonight for a little break off his left hamstring.
