In a move that manager Ron Washington said on Tuesday was coming, Robinson Chirinos will make his second start for the Rangers at catcher and Geovany Soto will sit for a day game following a night game. Chirinos went 1 for 4 with a double Sunday in his debut, and he'll likely get a game this weekend in the four-game series against Detroit before A.J. Pierzynski is activated from the disabled list Tuesday.
