Tonight's Rangers-Astros lineups: Joey Butler gets first big league start

Joey Butler had his first at-bat in the big leagues on Wednesday. Tonight he is making his first start, playing leftfield and batting eighth.

It should be a memorable night for Butler, who said his family will be in attendance. However, it could also mark the end of Butler's stay with the Rangers, who will have Alex Rios join the team on Saturday.
