Mike Napoli is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.
Jonathan Lucroy is also getting a day off. The Rangers have Ryan Rua at first base, Delino DeShields in left field and Robinson Chirinos at catcher.
Howie Kendrick (oblique) worked out at first base during pre-game on Friday and Saturday.
Kendrick doesn't figure to become a regular at first base, but with Tommy Joseph struggling and Aaron Altherr hitting he could see some starts at first. The veteran is due to come off the disabled list in about a week.
Aaron Nola felt continued soreness in his lower back following a bullpen session Friday.
The hope had been that Nola would be ready to return to the Phillies' rotation on Monday, but that obviously won't happen now. "After he completed it, he had some symptoms, some soreness or tightness, I guess," manager Pete Mackanin said. "It was decided he will not make his start on Monday. He will be reevaluated to determine his next bullpen. A couple of days ago he said he felt great and then [Friday] not so great. He's improving but he's not 100 percent. There's something bugging him. We're just going to take it day to day. We're being cautious with him this early in the season." With Nola's return date looking uncertain, Nick Pivetta could be in the Philly rotation for a while.
Jayson Werth is batting second for the Nationals on Sunday.
Michael Taylor was initially slated to hit in the No. 2 spot for the second straight day, but manager Dusty Baker made a wise switch and flip-flopped the two players, pushing Taylor down to the seven hole. Werth could stick in the spot for the long haul with Adam Eaton (knee) done for the season.
Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.
Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.
Phillies recalled RHP Nick Pivetta from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Pivetta will make his major league debut on Sunday against the Dodgers and could make additional starts depending on how Aaron Nola's (back) recovery goes. Fantasy owners can pass on Pivetta.
Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.
It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.
J.D. Martinez (foot) was sore after taking nine at-bats in extended spring training Friday.
It's not unexpected after a long layoff, but it did result in Martinez receiving treatment Saturday and Sunday rather than getting in more at-bats. He could return to extended spring action on Monday.
