The Rangers made their final personnel decisions and turned in their roster for the ALDS series with Tampa Bay this morning. As previously hinted, they are going with three catchers: Yorvit Torrealba, Mike Napoli, and Matt Treanor.
The starting rotation has been announced as C. J. Wilson in game one, Derek Holland in game two, and Matt Harrison and Colby Lewis in games three and four in some order. The seven relievers are: right-handers Mike Adams, Neftali Feliz, Scott Feldman, Alexi Ogando, and Koji Uehara; and left-handers Darren Oliver and Mike Gonzalez.
Also, Esteban German replaces Andres Blanco as the back-up infielder. Blanco has been dealing with a stress fracture in his lower back.
