Following a series win against the Angels in Anaheim, the A's head to Arlington to take on the Texas Rangers.

Brett Anderson has starting honors for the Green and Gold. Despite impressive numbers, health has been his biggest ailment thus far as he's had to leave early during two of his last three starts. Still, across those 17 innings, he's boasted a 2.65 ERA.

On the other side, Lance Lynn will take the bump for the red-hot Rangers. His last outing against the A's wasn't a pretty one -- he allowed eight runs in 3 1/3 frames. He's currently sporting a 3.96 ERA and is 4-0 in his last four starts at Globe Life Park.

A's second baseman Jurickson Profar, who spent six seasons with the Rangers, will be facing his former team for the third time this season. This is his second return to his former home turf this season -- let's just hope he doesn't get lost this time around.

Here are the projected starting lineups for Game 1 of the three-game set between the A's and Rangers. The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday with one game counting as the April 13th rainout.
