SURPRISE, Ariz. -- When the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals start action today with a charity game at Surprise Stadium at 2 p.m. CT, Texas' No. 1 pitcher will be on the mound.

Yu Darvish gets the start today against left-hander Bruce Chen. For Darvish, it's his first start against hitters who aren't wearing Rangers uniforms. He's slated to throw two innings or 35 pitches.

Manager Ron Washington is starting a bunch of his regulars. Alex Rios (toe) feels better but won't play, and catcher Geovany Soto (foot surgery) is still in a boot. Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will DH. But the lineup should still look familiar:

LF Shin-Soo Choo/Bryan Petersen
SS Elvis Andrus/Josh Wilson
1B Prince Fielder/Jim Adduci
3B Adrian Beltre/Alex Castellanos
DH Mitch Moreland/Jurickson Profar
C J.P. Arencibia/Robinson Chirinos
RF Michael Choice/Brad Snyder
2B Adam Rosales/Brent Lillibridge
CF Leonys Martin/Engel Beltre

Pitchers:

RHP Yu Darvish
RHP Tommy Hanson
LHP Ryan Feierabend
RHP Justin Germano
RHP Lisalverto Bonilla
