ANAHEIM -- The Rangers are looking at facing Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Lincecum during their three-game series with the Giants next weekend at AT&T Park.
Zito is scheduled to pitch on Friday against the Rangers, followed by Vogelsong on Saturday and Lincecum on Sunday. Zito hasn't pitched against the Rangers since 2009 and only once since leaving the Athletics as a free agent after the 2009 season. But he is 18-5 with a 3.72 ERA in 31 career starts against them. He needs one more victory to tie Bert Blyleven, Dennis Leonard and Jack Morris for most ever against the Rangers.
Vogelsong hasn't faced the Rangers since 2001, when he was with the Pirates. Lincecum hasn't faced them in the regular season but beat the Rangers twice during the 2010 World Series.
