New York Yankees

Texas Rangers

Yu Darvish will probably be available for the All-Star Game. From MLB.com's Earl Bloom:

Right-hander Yu Darvish's last scheduled start before the All-Star break will be July 13 against the Angels -- two days before the All-Star Game in Minnesota.

"If he wants to pitch an inning [in Minnesota], he could pitch an inning, on 20 pitches," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "Nothing more than that.

"Unless something happens to somebody, that's what it works out to be, up to the All-Star break."
