Lineups: Geovany Soto makes first start

Yu Darvish returns to the mound for the first time since his near-perfect game against the Houston Astros. He will oppose Jered Weaver as the Rangers go for the series win over the visiting Angels. Geovany Soto makes his first start at catcher this season in place of A.J. Pierzynski, who sits for the first time.
