Description: The Rangers will start 25-year-old Chris McGuiness at first base with Mitch Moreland placed on the DL Thursday due to a hamstring injury.
Insight: Coach Ron Washington said McGuiness will see most of the playing time until Moreland returns. McGuiness was batting .275 with six homers, 34 RBI and 26 runs scored in 55 games at Triple-A Round Rock. McGuiness doesn't figure to be more than a short-term fill in until Moreland or Ian Kinsler gets healthy.
