Pre-Game Notes: According to manager Ron Washington, right-hander Frank Francisco is officially the Rangers' closer again ... Disabled center fielder Josh Hamilton (abdominal surgery) is slated to start as Triple-A Oklahoma City's designated hitter tonight and play in the outfield the next two nights after that, after which he should be prepared for activation before Saturday evening's game against Tampa Bay; because of the alignment of the Rays' starting rotation, newly promoted outfielder Julio Borbon may not receive another start before being optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City ... Infielder German Duran was claimed off waivers by the Astros mere hours before he would have cleared and has been placed on Houston's major league disabled list.
