Lineups: Profar back in leadoff spot

By Randy Jennings

Jurickson Profar is back in the leadoff spot a day after being dropped to eighth in the batting order. Justin Grimm is on the mound for the Rangers, who are looking to snap a three-game losing streak as they take on the Mark Buehrle and the Blue Jays. Game time is 7:05 p.m. on FSSW and ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM (1540 AM in Spanish). Left-handed hitters David Murphy and A.J. Pierzynski aren’t in the Rangers lineup. Leonys Martin makes his second start in left field, replacing Murphy. Here are the lineups:

General manager Jon Daniels joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett to discuss the Rangers' offensive struggles, injuries and the plan for Jurickson Profar once Ian Kinsler returns from the disabled list.
