Another attempt at .500. Honestly, with the start we had, I didn't think we'd get back to .500 until after the All-Star break, so it doesn't bother me that they haven't hit .500.
There are a few changes to the lineup. Donaldson gets the 'half day' rest, DHing. Martin plays third, Pearce needs a day or two.
Marcus Stroman gets the start. He's been very good. Martin Perez starts for the Rangers, he hasn't been good, but we've had our troubles against lefties.
