SEATTLE -- The Rangers aren't expected to face Angels pitcher and former teammate C.J.Wilson during a three-game series that starts Friday in Anaheim. Wilson is scheduled to pitch Wednesday against the Indians.

The Rangers may or may not face Jered Weaver, depending if manager Mike Scioscia wants to use an off-day on Thursday to skip struggling fifth starter Hector Santiago. He is 0-4 with a 4.44 ERA.

If the Angels skip Santiago, their rotation lines up for Garrett Richards, Tyler Skaggs and Weaver to pitch in the three-game series. If the Angels stay in rotation, Weaver would get pushed back to Monday against the Yankees. Weaver is 13-8 with a 3.66 ERA in 32 career starts against the Rangers.
