The Rangers wasted little time getting Jim Adduci into a game. The 28-year-old had his contract purchased earlier today and is set to make his big-league debut after playing in 889 minor-league games.
Adduci is starting in left and batting sixth, as manager Ron Washington gives a struggling David Murphy a day off.
