Texas likely to miss ex-teammate Wilson again

CHICAGO -- The Angels will be in Arlington during the weekend of Aug. 15-17 for a three-game series. It will be the fourth series between the two teams this season, and the Rangers are still not expected to face C.J. Wilson.

The former Ranger is scheduled to start Thursday against the Dodgers and next Wednesday against the Phillies. That would mean he won't pitch against the Rangers, something he hasn't done yet this season. The Rangers are likely to face Jered Weaver, Garrett Richards and Hector Santiago in that series.

Texas is scheduled to face Scott Feldman this weekend in Houston during the Rangers' three-game series with the Astros at Minute Maid Park. The Astros' rotation calls for left-hander Brett Oberholtzer on Friday, Feldman on Saturday and left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday.

The Rangers then return home to face the Rays for a four-game series. The Rays' rotation calls for left-hander Drew Smyly and right-handers Jeremy Hellickson, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi.
