Ian Kinsler (back tightness) scratched

By Master Tesfatsion

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- There was a late change to the Rangers' lineup Sunday. Ian Kinsler will not play against the Cleveland Indians due to tightness in his lower back.

It will be the second straight game he will miss. Kinsler, as well as the rest of the regular starters, was not in the lineup by design Saturday. It was a scheduled day off by manager Ron Washington.

With Kinsler out, Yangervis Solarte started in his place at second base. Elvis Andrus moved up a spot to hit leadoff and Solarte hit second.
