Wednesday morning from Surprise: Napoli, Moreland expected to start Rangers intrasquad game

Mike Napoli said he'd be behind the plate. Mitch Moreland expects to be at first base.

Those are the two notable starters for the Texas Rangers' first intrasquad game of spring training, scheduled for Wednesday at the Surprise Recreation Campus.

Napoli, who is still recovering from a severe left ankle sprain, said he would play three or four innings, and take two at- bats during the game. Moreland expects to play, too, although he wasn't sure how many innings he'd go.

Other notes from Tuesday:

* Alberto Gonzalez, one of the candidates for the utility infielder job, said he is most comfortable playing shortstop, but is fine playing third and second base.

* The Rangers shot four commercials during the first week of spring training in Arizona. The players used included Derek Holland, Elvis Andrus, Adrian Beltre and Michael Young.

* Elvis Andrus, who is recovering from having a wart removed, is expected to increase his intensity today, running harder.
