A's Vs. Rangers Lineups: Mark Canha Gets Starting Honors in Center Field

Following a series win against the Angels in Anaheim, the A's head to Arlington, Tex. to take on the Texas Rangers.

Brett Anderson has starting honors for the Green and Gold. And despite impressive numbers, health has been his biggest ailment thus far as he's left early during two of his last three starts. Still, across those 17 innings, he's boasted a 2.65 ERA.

On the other side, Lance Lynn will take the bump for the red-hot Rangers. His last outing against the A's wasn't a pretty one -- he allowed eight runs in 3 1/3 frames. He's currently hosting a 3.96 ERA and is 4-0 in his last four starts at Globe Life Park.

A's second baseman Jurickson Profar will be facing his former team in which he spent six seasons. This is his second return to his home turf of the year -- let's just hope he doesn't get lost this time around.

Here are how the lineups predict to shape up for the first of a three-game series.
