Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers will have 10 relievers available for Friday's wild card game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Yu Darvish will get the start for Texas on Friday, but Rangers manager Ron Washington will have plenty of arms ready if the rookie struggles.

Matt Harrison, Derek Holland and Scott Feldman, each of whom made at least 21 starts this season, will be among the pitchers available for long relief or extra innings.

The rest of the relief staff will consist of veteran Roy Oswalt, closer Joe Nathan, Alexi Ogando, Yoshinori Tateyama, Koji Uehara, Michael Kirkman and Robbie Ross.

Washington elected to keep three catchers, as Geovany Soto and Luis Martinez will join Mike Napoli.

The infielders will be Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus, Ian Kinsler, Michael Young, Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar. The outfielders on the roster are Josh Hamilton, Nelson Cruz, David Murphy, Craig Gentry and Leonys Martin.
