Sunday’s lineups: Tigers at Rangers

It’s the anti-lefty lineup tonight against Derek Holland, which means Omar Infante leads off, Avisail Garcia plays center and Brayan Pena gets the start behind the plate.

The Rangers put Ian Kinsler on the 15-day DL on Sunday and called up top prospect Jurickson Profar to take his place. Profar, however, won’t be starting tonight. Leury Garcia gets another start at second, batting ninth. Meanwhile, Craig Gentry gets a start in center field, giving Leonys Martin the night off.

Check out David Murphy’s numbers against Doug Fister.
