A.J. Pierzynski is making his second straight start at designated hitter, as Monday's walk-off hero Geovany Soto gets a second straight start behind the plate.
Manager Ron Washington said there is no physical concerns with Pierzynski, and simply wanted another right-handed bat (Soto) in the lineup against Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson.
