Nick Martinez is scheduled to make his third start today for the Rangers. The rookie right-hander has a 2.38 ERA over two starts and five relief appearances with the Rangers, and is still going for his first major-league win.

He allowed three runs over six innings in his first start at Tampa Bay on April 5, and allowed four runs (two earned) over five innings in a start against Oakland on April 22.

The Rangers original lineup included Rougned Odor, but he was scratched with soreness in his right wrist. Luis Sardinas is replacing him.

Here are the lineups:

Texas -- 1. Michael Choice, lf; 2. Elvis Andrus, ss; 3. Shin-Soo Choo, dh; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Alex Rios, rf; 6. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 7. Robinson Chirinos, c; 8. Leonys Martin, cf; 9. Luis Sardinas, 2b.

RHP Nick Martinez (0-1, 2.38 ERA)
