Lineups for Rangers-Orioles opener

Right-hander Scott Feldman takes the mound for the Orioles tonight in the opener of a four-game series against his old team, the Texas Rangers. Left-hander Derek Holland will oppose him.

Brian Roberts is back in the lineup as the Orioles designated hitter tonight. His travels around the batting order take him to the eight-hole. He's previously batted fifth, sixth and ninth since returning from the disabled list.

Alexi Casilla is hitting ninth at second base.
