Avisail Garcia and Tommy Pham are back in the outfield for the Rays tonight as the take on the Rangers in their final game at Globe Life Park, which the Rangers are leaving after 26 seasons for a new retractable roof stadium nearby.

Garcia left Tuesday’s game and sat out Wednesday with a strained glute, and Pham has been either off or limited to DH duties for a week due to soreness in his right elbow/forearm that has limited his throwing.

Brendan McKay will be on the mound for the Rays, making his second start since a brief trip to the minors and a short stint there on the injured list. Lefty Kolby Allard is starting for the Rangers.
