Leonys Martin is being given another day off with a stiff neck. He slept on it wrong Monday night and will not play in this two-game series against Seattle.

Prince Fielder also remains sidelined with a herniated disk in his neck and it is becoming a more alarming injury as he is visiting with back specialist Drew Dossett for a second time in a week on Thursday.

That left manager Ron Washington fielding a lineup once again that had Daniel Robertson leading off and Shin-Soo Choo in the three-hole. Chris Gimenez is making his Rangers debut, meanwhile, at catcher.

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

RHP Nick Tepesch (0-0, 1.69 ERA)

Seattle -- 1. James Jones, cf; 2. Michael Saunders, rf; 3. Robinson Cano, dh; 4. Kyle Seager, 3b; 5. Justin Smoak, 1b; 6. Nick Franklin, 2b; 7. Dustin Ackley, lf; 8. John Buck, c; 9. Brad Miller, ss.

RHP Chris Young (3-1, 3.22 ERA)
