ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Newly acquired ace Cliff Lee has been added to the Rangers’ 25-man roster and will make his Texas debut against the Baltimore Orioles.

The left-hander will start for the AL West-leading Rangers on Saturday night, a day after coming over from Seattle in a six-player trade. The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner and current All-Star had been scheduled to start Friday night for the Mariners against the New York Yankees.

Texas also recalled left-hander Matt Harrison from Triple-A Oklahoma City, and optioned right-handers Doug Mathis and Pedro Strop to its top farm team.

In anticipation of Lee’s debut, some parking lots were already full and there were long lines at ticket windows more than 3 1/2 hours before the game.
