Colby Lewis (4.18 FIP) is scheduled to start for Texas. Lewis hasn’t been the same pitcher since undergoing elbow surgery in 2012, but he’s up 6.06 units this year on a team record of 16-14. The last time Lewis faced the A’s was September 11, when he twirled a complete-game two-hitter in a 4-0 Texas victory, cashing in as a –133 home chalk on the closing line.
The A’s will be going with Felix Doubront (4.09 FIP), who’s enjoyed a surprisingly good run in Oakland after the Toronto Blue Jays designated him for assignment in late July. Doubront has made six starts, and Oakland is 5-1 for a profit of 7.04 units. However, only two of those appearances were quality starts. Current Rangers have a combined 1.012 OPS versus Dubront; Adrian Beltre is 7-for-11 with two home runs.
