With lefty Derek Holland starting for the Rangers, Sveum will start Dave Sappelt in center field and Scott Hairston in right. That means .343 hitter Nate Schierholtz starts on the bench. He leads the team with an-on base percentage of .410.
Sveum hasn't budged from his pledge to load up on right-handed hitters when a lefty is on the mound, though that kind of lineup is 0-3 this season with the starting nine producing just one run. They have a batting average of .208 against lefties so far with an on-base percentage of .292.
Players from both teams will wear No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. Major League Baseball celebrated "Jackie Robinson Day" on Monday but both teams were off.
CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum is sticking with his mostly right-handed lineup when his team begins a three-game interleague series against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.
