Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup. Adrian Beltre is at designated hitter to keep him off the AstroTurf. And Mike Napoli is at catcher for Yu Darvish's start tonight.
The fans in Toronto are anxious to see Darvish, as it was believed to be the runner-up in the Darvish sweepstakes this winter. But don't expect the Rangers to issue any apologies.
"I don't feel any pain for Toronto," manager Ron Washington said, smiling.
