Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish (elbow) will not pitch again this season.
Insight: Darvish has been out since Aug. 13 with right elbow inflammation. With everyone including Ron Washigton, who resigned as manager on Friday, packing it in for the season, there is no reason to rush back Darvish this month. He was 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA and 186 strikeouts in 144 1/3 innings this year. He should be a fantasy ace again in 2015.
 
8/25/2014 5:08:00 PM
Description: Rangers GM Jon Daniels indicated Monday that Yu Darvish (elbow) is unlikely to pitch again this season, according to the Dallas Morning News
Insight: The Rangers are 50-79 and have no reason to take a risk with Darvish, who is signed through 2017. "With everything else we've dealt with and how important he is, we've said once he's completely asymptomatic and the doctor clears him, we'd get another scan and then if everything is clear, we'd get him back pitching," Daniels said. "By the calendar and how close to the end of the season we are, I don't know that it will allow him to pitch again. ... It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me to take a risk when the MRI clearly shows there is something going on in there."
 
8/23/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish (elbow) has not resumed throwing and will not return from the disabled list on Monday according to Fox Sports Southwest.
Insight: Darvish is eligible to return from the DL on August 25 when Texas begins its 10-game road trip in Seattle, but that will not happen. There is no timetable for his return and with the Rangers out of the race, perhaps he is done for the season.
 
8/19/2014 8:13:00 PM
Description: According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Rangers starter Yu Darvish (elbow) is not expected to return on Aug. 25.
Insight: When Darvish was placed on the DL, manager Ron Washington said he expected the right-hander to return when first eligible. Now, he said he's "backing off" the idea of Darvish being back for Aug. 25. "I'm not really thinking about the 25th," Washington said. "I just don't know what's going to be. I don't know what’s going to happen there."
 
8/15/2014 6:52:00 PM
Description: According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Rangers manager Ron Washington expects Yu Darvish to return to the rotation on Aug. 25.
Insight: Darvish felt tightness in his elbow while playing catch Monday and he was placed on the disabled list as a precaution. He has no structural damage and should be ready to start at Seattle in 10 days.
 
8/14/2014 8:45:00 PM
Description: The MRI on Rangers ace Yu Darvish showed only mild inflamation, according to sportswriter Anthony Andro.
Insight: No structural damage. He lasted four innings Saturday and felt tightness while playing catch Monday, but he shouldn't be gone long.
 
8/13/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Rangers GM Jon Daniels said that the decision to place Yu Darvish on the disabled list with elbow inflammation was a precautionary move.
Insight: Darvish will undergo an MRI Thursday, but initial exams indicated the injury doesn't involved his UCL. He lasted four innings Saturday and felt tightness while playing catch Monday.
 
8/13/2014 8:09:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Darvish will undergo an MRI Thursday, but initial exams indicated the injury doesn't involved his UCL. He lasted four innings Saturday and felt tightness while playing catch Monday.
 
8/9/2014 11:16:00 PM
Description: A rare bad outing for Rangers starter Yu Darvish against the Houston Astros.
Insight: Rarer still because the Houston lineup was missing a number of pieces in Jose Altuve, George Springer and Dexter Fowler. Although Darvish is 10-7 with a solid ERA his WHIP has taken a jump from last season - 1.073 to 1.260.
 
7/18/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish struck out 12 batters over 6 2/3 innings Friday at Toronto.
Insight: Darvish gave up one run on five hits to get his ninth win. The right-hander has a 2.88 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and 154 Ks in 122 innings this season, so he's been exactly what fantasy owners expected.
 
7/8/2014 8:33:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish was hit in the head by a line drive while throwing in the outfield during batting practice Tuesday, but Darvish is expected to start Wednesday, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Darvish was examined by a team doctor Tuesday night and he'll be checked again Wednesday, but he should be good to go against the Astros, a team he's nearly no-hit three times since the start of 2013.
 
7/3/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have pushed Yu Darvish back from Thursday to Friday due to the uncertainty of the weather, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: The Rangers don't want Darvish to start Thursday and then have to come out due to a lengthy rain delay. Darvish will start Friday against the Mets instead and Scott Baker will take the ball Thursday against the Orioles.
 
6/28/2014 8:13:00 PM
Description: Rangers ace Yu Darvish ended a personal two-game losing streak Saturday against the Twins.
Insight: Darvish (8-4, 2.42 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) struck out 10 and walked over over eight shutout innings. He's allowed zero runs in six of his 15 starts this season. After giving up 1.12 HR/9 last season, he's allowed just 0.60 this year.
 
6/11/2014 10:49:00 PM
Description: Rangers ace Yu Darvish earned his first career shutout Wednesday against Miami.
Insight: With the way he's pitched since coming onto the scene in 2012, it's hard to believe Darvish didn't have a shutout until now. His tidy 2.11 ERA is among the best in the major leagues and Darvish is one of just six big league pitchers with 100 or more strikeouts this season. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against Oakland.
 
6/1/2014 7:55:00 PM
Description: Texas right-hander Yu Darvish was dominant Sunday in his return to the starting rotation.
Insight: He delivered 12 punchouts over eight scoreless frames. Opposing hitters are now batting just .210 against Darvish (5-2, 2.08 ERA) in 2014. When healthy, Darvish is a top-ten fantasy pitcher.
 
5/29/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have moved Yu Darvish's start back to Sunday. Previously, the right-hander told reporters he would pitch Saturday against Washington. SOURCE: Gerry Fraley, Dallas Morning News
Insight: Darvish (4-2, 2.35 ERA) has been dealing with neck stiffness but it looks like the injury will only cost him one start. Nick Tepesch (2-0, 2.95 ERA) will start Saturday's game.
 
5/28/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Texas right-hander Yu Darvish expects to make his scheduled appearance Saturday against Washington. SOURCE: Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Insight: He missed Tuesday's start because of a stiff neck. If Darvish (4-2, 2.35 ERA) can't pitch Saturday, Nick Tepesch (2-0, 2.95 ERA) would get the start instead.
 
5/27/2014 8:19:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish's MRI results were "unremarkable," which means he has no structural damage, according to T.R. Sullivan of mlb.com.
Insight: Darvish was scratched from Tuesday's start after waking up with neck stiffness. He missed Opening Day with the same injury but was able to return on April 6.
 
5/27/2014 4:38:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish has been scratched from Tuesday's start due to a stiff neck, according to the team.
Insight: Fantasy owners don't want to hear this, but he is scheduled for an MRI. He missed Opening Day with the same injury. He's 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 71 strikeouts in 61.1 IP. Scott Baker will make the start.
 
Hot5/9/2014 11:09:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Yu Darvish had a no-hitter for 8 2/3 innings Friday but allowed a single to David Ortiz. He ended up striking out 12 batters in 8 2/3 scoreless frames to win his third game of the year.
Insight: This has happened to Darvish before -- he had a perfect game going in his first start of 2013 but lost it with two outs in the ninth. The right-hander's perfect game on Friday was spoiled by Ortiz in the seventh when the DH's popup landed between defenders in shallow right field, but the official scorer in Texas ruled it an error on Alex Rios.
