I-Rod, Caminiti Rejoin Rangers
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ All-Star catcher Ivan Rodriguez, who missed two games with a bruised left heel, was back in the starting lineup for Texas on Tuesday night for the opener of a three-game series against Detroit.
Rodriguez sustained his injury when his heel hit first base awkwardly as he ran out a grounder in the ninth inning Friday night at Cleveland. He didn’t play in the final two games of the series against the Indians.
Third baseman Ken Caminiti, who hadn’t played since April 20 because of a strained left groin muscle, also returned to the lineup for the Rangers.
