Darvish to skip Halos in next scheduled start
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Yu Darvish's next start is on Sunday, but it won't be against the Angels in Tempe.

The Rangers are scheduled to play the Angels that day, but Darvish will do his work in a Minor League game.

The Rangers originally planned for Darvish to do all his work in Cactus League games. But they have changed their minds and have decided against Darvish pitching against their primary American League West rival.

"We didn't want him to travel to Tempe," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.
