Lineup Card: Rockies @ Rangers 6-22-12


Colorado Rockies (26-42)
  1. Dexter Fowler (CF)
  2. Marco Scutaro (2B)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Jason Giambi (DH)
  5. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  6. Todd Helton (1B)
  7. Chris Nelson (3B)
  8. Wilin Rosario (C)
  9. Jonathan Herrera (SS)
Christian Friedrich (4-3, 5.60)

Yes, Jonathan Herrera has returned from his hamstring injury and immediately joins the starting lineup at shortstop. Though I think some would argue there are two better defensive shortstops in the lineup with him tonight playing two other positions. D.J. LeMahieu was optioned back to Colorado Springs to make room.

Texas Rangers (43-27)
  1. Ian Kinsler (2B)
  2. Elvis Andrus (SS)
  3. Josh Hamilton (LF)
  4. Adrian Beltre (DH)
  5. Michael Young (3B)
  6. Nelson Cruz (RF)
  7. Mike Napoli (1B)
  8. Yorvit Torrealba (C)
  9. Craig Gentry (CF)
Roy Oswalt (Season Debut)

I miss the San Diego Pardes. When can we play them again? Or Houston?
