Report: Rangers Shuffle Rotation, C.J. Wilson to Start Sunday Against Red Sox

The Red Sox were supposed to face Rangers pitchers Tommy Hunter, Rich Harden and Colby Lewis, in that order, over the weekend.

Instead, the Rangers have decided to push back Harden, the team’s fifth starter, until Monday night and will throw left-hander C.J. Wilson at Boston on Sunday, reports. Hunter still will pitch Friday, while Lewis will now pitch Saturday.

Thanks to having two days off this week (Monday and Thursday), Texas has the advantage of using Wilson (10-5, 3.30 ERA) instead of the scuffling Harden (4-4, 5.45 ERA) against the Red Sox.
