Rangers will have Darvish face AL West teams
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the Padres on Wednesday. His next start has not been announced but most likely would be the following Monday against the Mariners.

Manager Ron Washington said the Rangers are not going to hide Darvish in a 'B' or Minor League games if they are playing an American League West rival.

"If we had a closer coming over from the National League we might try to hide him," Washington said. "But when it's his time and it's against an AL West team, go get them."

In the past the Rangers often had pitchers like Kevin Millwood and Vicente Padilla get their work done on the back fields rather than the Cactus League game. The Rangers might let Colby Lewis do that if he wants, but Washington said the intention right now is for all other starters to pitch in Cactus League.
