Notes: Anthony Andro of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has the early scoop on the Rangers' lineup, which will not include center fielder Josh Hamilton or third baseman Hank Blalock; neither slugger traveled to Scottsdale for this afternoon's contest. Chris Shelton, Joaquin Arias, Gerald Laird and Taylor Teagarden will not be in attendance either.
Right-handers Jamey Wright and Robinson Tejeda are both scheduled to pitch in relief after A.J. Murray completes his requisite innings this afternoon; manager Ron Washington may decide to extend him slightly and allow him to fire a third inning this time around.
