Tonight's Rangers-Angels lineups

Geovany Soto makes his 2013 debut tonight behind the plate, catching Yu Darvish's second start of the season. A.J. Pierzynski gets a day off, a decision that Rangers manager Ron Washington said he made with the help of bench coach Jackie Moore.

Washington also gave Leonys Martin his second consecutive start in center field, as he had been swapping Martin and Craig Gentry every other day. Washington hopes the move will help Martin, who is batting .100, get going.

Here are the full lineups.

Texas: 1. Ian Kinsler, 2b; 2. Elvis Andrus, ss; 3. Lance Berkman, dh; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. David Murphy, lf; 6. Nelson Cruz, rf; 7. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 8. Geovany Soto, c; 9. Leonys Martin, cf.

RHP Yu Darvish (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

LA Angels: 1. Mike Trout, lf; 2. Erick Aybar, ss; 3. Albert Pujols, dh; 4. Josh Hamilton, rf; 5. Mark Trumbo, 1b; 6. Howard Kendrick, 2b; 7. Alberto Callaspo, 3b; 8. Chris Iannetta, c; 9. Peter Bourjos, cf.

RHP Jered Weaver (0-0, 1.50 ERA)
