Mitch Garver (elbow) active, starting Thursday for Rangers

Texas Rangers catcher Mitch Garver (elbow) is in the starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against left-hander Framber Valdez and the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

The Rangers reinstated Garver from the 10-day injured list on Thursday after a minimum stay due to a right flexor sprain. He is serving as the designated hitter in his first game and batting sixth. Brad Miller is idle after starting at DH on Wednesday and Jonah Heim is at catcher again. Nick Solak was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding roster move with Garver's activation.

numberFire’s models project Garver for 9.4 FanDuel points on Thursday, and he has a $2,500 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers have the second-lowest implied total (3.32) in the majors on Thursday.
