Geovany Soto to catch Matt Garza

Geovany Soto will start at catcher for Matt Garza’s Texas debut Wednesday. The two spent 1 1/2 years together with the Cubs before the Rangers acquired Soto last year before the trade deadline. Garza has a 3.69 ERA with a .252 opponents batting average in 37 career games with Soto at catcher.

A.J. Pierzynski will hit fifth as the designated hitter. Elvis Andrus returns to the second spot in the Rangers order. Jeff Baker will start in left field and hit sixth.
