Jeff Baker returns to the Rangers' lineup Monday, though this one isn't entirely out of necessity. Left-hander Scott Kazmir is on the mound for Cleveland, and Baker has a .381 average and a .952 slugging percentage in 42 at-bats vs. lefties. Lance Berkman is back as the designated hitter. He was off Sunday at the manager's discretion after playing all 18 innings Saturday.
