Josh Lindblom will start on Wednesday against Baltimore.
He gets the nod over Ross Wolf. "[Lindblom's] been doing a good job in Triple-A, and I'd rather keep Wolf in his ... role in the bullpen," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "Lindblom is the one who's been getting a lot of starter's innings, and we just want to keep him with that type of focus. If we had to use Wolf, we wouldn't hesitate." It should just be a spot start for Lindblom, as Alexi Ogando is due back just after the All-Star break.
