ARLINGTON -- Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish, on the 15-day disabled list, will not travel with the team to Seattle for next week's three-game series against the Mariners.
Darvish was stretching and running along the warning track before Saturday's game during batting practice but has not thrown since being placed on the 15-day DL with inflammation in his right elbow Aug. 13. The Rangers' three-game series against the Mariners begins Monday and kicks off a 10-day road trip.
"He won't be available after these 15 days are over," said manager Ron Washington. "He hasn't picked up a ball yet."
Darvish could join the team in Houston or Kansas City on that trip, although there is also a chance he could miss all 10 games. Whether he needs a rehab start before returning to the Rangers has also yet to be determined. Darvish, who is 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA this season, is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday.
"He's going to stay here and continue to work and get treatment," Washington said. "I don't know how long he'll take to get started. He might be down for the whole 10 days."
