Yu's debut adds to Rangers' unusual week
ARLINGTON -- Yu Darvish makes his Major League debut on Monday night, and it was chronicled by over 200 members of the media. It has been that kind of a weekend for the Rangers, and infielder Michael Young said the team has not yet settled into a regular-season routine.

"It's just natural stuff," Young said. "You had Opening Day on Friday, the ring ceremony on Saturday and the rain delay [that wiped out batting practice] on Sunday," Young said. "It will be nice to get settled into the season and get settled into a routine. It probably takes a week and a half to two weeks to get going. But at the same time, we still have a couple of days left on this homestand. We still want to go out and play well."

The Rangers, beginning Monday, have a four-game series with the Mariners before heading out for their first road trip of the season. They have a three-game series with the Twins that starts on Friday at Target Field.

Young said the intense media interest surrounding Darvish's first start was not a distraction for the Rangers.

"This doesn't matter one bit," Young said. "We're excited to have Yu on our team. His first start is a big deal, and it should be. He had a great deal of success in Japan, and we're happy he's here. It should be a big deal."
