DETROIT -- The Rangers' game against the Angels on July 29 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has been moved up from 7:05 p.m. CT to 6:05 p.m. to accommodate national cable TV. It's the second of two games after the All-Star break that have been moved up for a national broadcast.
The game against the Yankees on July 22 in Arlington has also been moved up to 6:05 p.m. Yu Darvish, who is on the disabled list with a strained right trapezius muscle, is scheduled to pitch for the Rangers that night. There is also a possibility that Alex Rodriguez could come off the disabled list that night for the Yankees after being sidelined all season due to his hip surgery.
Both games will also be shown on the Rangers' local TV outlets, as well as out of market on MLB.TV.
