Tonight's Rangers-Astros lineups: Alex Rios makes debut

As expected, Alex Rios is making his debut with the Texas Rangers tonight. He's playing right field and batting sixth.

Manager Ron Washington met with Rios this afternoon, and told the 32-year-old that the team isn't looking for him "to carry the team." They simply want Rios to fit in and help with the stretch run.
