Texas Rangers

The latest on Yu Darvish, from ESPN's Richard Durrett:

Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish threw an 86-pitch bullpen session at Globe Life Park on Tuesday and is getting closer to making his first start of the 2014 season.

When that occurs is still undecided, but Darvish can't come off the disabled list until Saturday. Starting Sunday in Tampa Bay or Monday in Boston seems quite possible, though the club isn't giving any timetables. They will discuss a plan after seeing how Darvish recovers from the bullpen session Wednesday, but both manager Ron Washington and general manager Jon Daniels indicated Monday that Darvish didn't necessarily need a rehab start before getting back in the rotation.

... Darvish, 27, hasn't thrown to hitters since March 16 in Arizona. But the club and Darvish feel that physically he's ready without needing any kind of rehab start in the minor leagues.
