Los Angeles Dodgers Lineup

Texas Rangers Lineup

Injury Update: Engel Beltre will again not be in the lineup.  He is still day-to-day with shin splints.  Brent Lillibridge is out today with a bruised thumb.  Alex Rios is still day-to-day due to an right intercostal strain.  Rios isn’t considered serious.

Other game notes: The Rangers have scheduled several other pitchers today.

Robbie Ross continues to try to work himself in to a starting role.  Also, Neftali Feliz is working to build his velocity and command back up as he continues to prove he is the one for the closer role.  In his last outing, Feliz was able to pick up some speed, about in the lower 90′s which was down where he was in in the Dominican Winter League where he was pitching in the high 90s.

Today’s game is at 2:05 PM CT.  This game not be televised, but it will be on 103.3 ESPN Dallas Radio and on MLB.com.

    Ross got 2 strike outs over 2.2,innings. But allowed a run. I’m still on the fence with him being a starter.

    • lmhw24

      I know that is what HE really wants….but I hope that when he’s told that the team can better use his talents as a reliever he will accept that, b/c then he’ll probably shine.

    Felix looked good today

  • David W. Cash

    Nice triple by Moreland to help tie the game.
