Rangers' Yu Darvish Starting Last Cactus League Game On Friday

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish will make his final Cactus League start on Friday night, as the Rangers take on the Colorado Rockies.

Darvish's last outing came in a minor league game on Sunday, when he was inconsistent to say the least. While Darvish did strike out nine in five innings, he did surrender four runs -- all scoring in the fourth inning. The reports on Darvish's stuff, though, were good, as he touched the high 90s with his fastball, and flashed his plus-plus slider.

Darvish last faced a major league opponent on March 19, when he gave up one run on one hit, while walking three and striking out four in four innings against the Milwaukee Brewers.

This will be Darvish's last test before the regular season. Manager Ron Washington announced that Darvish will pitch on Monday, April 9, at home against the Seattle Mariners.

Televised coverage of tonight's game between the Rangers and Rockies is available on KTXA. The game will also be broadcast to MLB.tv subscribers.
