The Rangers are off on Thursday before opening a three-game series against the Angels next Friday. The Rangers are not expected to face former teammate C.J. Wilson in that series unless weather forces the Angels to change the rotation. The Angels are lined up to have left-hander Hector Santiago pitch the opener, followed by right-handers Matt Shoemaker and Jered Weaver.
