Monday's Rangers-Angels lineups: Replacing Nelson Cruz

The Rangers will play their first game Monday without right fielder Nelson Cruz, who was suspended for taking PEDs earlier in the day. The first outfield alignment without had Engel Beltre in left field, Leonys Martin in center and David Murphy in right. There are three other outfielders on the roster, including Jeff Baker but not Jurickson Profar, so the outfield could be in motion every day.

Rangers lineup vs. RHP Jerome Williams: Leonys Martin, cf; Elvis Andrus, ss; Ian Kinsler, dh; Adrian Beltre, 3b; A.J. Pierzynski, c; David Murphy, rf; Mitch Moreland, 1b; Jurickson Profar, 2b; Engel Beltre, lf.

Angels lineup vs. LHP Martin Perez: Collin Cowgill, rf; Mike Trout, cf; Howie Kendrick, 2b; Mark Trumbo, 1b; Josh Hamilton, lf; Erick Aybar, ss; Chris Nelson, 3b; Chris Iannetta, c; J.B. Shuck, dh.
