The ever-revolving No. 2 spot in the Rangers' lineup has shuffled back to Elvis Andrus, but that's no surprise. The Yankees are starting a left-hander, and manager Ron Washington has said that the right-handed-hitting shortstop will bat second against lefties. A lefty also means that Jeff Baker is in left field and Craig Gentry is in right. Another right-handed batter, Geovany Soto, catches former teammate Matt Garza in his Rangers debut.
