Tuesday's Rangers workout notes: Lewis Game 2 starter; Cruz moving up?

Here are a few Rangers notes before the team worked out on Tuesday afternoon.

* Rangers manager Ron Washington said Nelson Cruz could move up from the seven-hole in the World Series lineup. Nothing is official, but Washington said he would discuss the possibility with his coaches following the workout.

* Colby Lewis will start Game 2, Washington said. Lewis hasn't pitched in a while, and Washington didn't mind going with the same 1-2 punch the Rangers started the season with (C.J. Wilson and Lewis).

* The team is still deciding whether to go with an extra reliever for an eight-man bullpen, or add a third catcher. The bullpen pieces are yet to be determined as well, as one or two (in an eight-man 'pen) could be up for grabs. The relievers who have locked their spots are Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando, Mike Adams, Darren Oliver, Mike Gonzalez and Scott Feldman. Koji Uehara, who made the ALDS and ALCS roster, could be replaced by Mark Lowe or Darren O'Day. And Yoshinori Tateyama might not make the roster in this round after being on the ALCS one.
