Texas Rangers top prospect Jurickson Profar will make his debut in leftfield tonight against the Houston Astros.
Profar has been working the past couple of weeks with outfield coach Gary Pettis, and has gotten the go-ahead for the outfield. Profar has never played in the outfield as a professional.
Geovany Soto, meanwhile, will start at catcher and work for a second consecutive start with Yu Darvish.
Here is the Rangers' lineup:
Texas -- 1. Ian Kinsler, 2b; 2. Elvis Andrus, ss; 3. Nelson Cruz, rf; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Lance Berkman, dh; 6. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 7. Geovany Soto, c; 8. Jurickson Profar, lf; 9. Leonys Martin, cf.
