Yu Darvish (TEX) was scratched from his start on Tuesday because of neck stiffness.  From MLB.com's Fantasy Player News & Updates:

Darvish woke up on Tuesday with stiffness in the neck. He underwent treatment, tried to get loose and was not able to do so. The Rangers decided to scratch him as a precautionary measure and start Feldman instead. The Rangers are uncertain when Darvish will start again, but it's unlikely that he'll get to start more than once before the end of the regular season. Darvish is 16-9 with a 3.90 ERA in 29 starts and 184 2/3 innings.
