Yu Darvish's Cactus League Start Not Televised, Webcast Available

Planning on catching Yu Darvish's first Cactus League start? Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Darvish's start against the Padres on Wednesday is not going to be televised ... in America, at least. Texas' game against the Padres will be broadcast to Japan on NHK.

Don't fret entirely, though. Fox Sports Southwest has worked out a deal with NHK, and they will broadcast highlights of Darvish's start against the Rangers in between coverage of the Pac-12 college basketball tournament. Fox Sports Southwest is expected to broadcast highlights at 4 p.m. CT.

If you'd merely like to listen to the game, texasrangers.com will have a free, exclusive audio webcast available at 2 p.m. CT.

Darvish is expected to throw two innings, or 35 pitches in his Wednesday debut against the Padres.

While it's certainly disappointing that Rangers fans won't be able to catch Darvish's first start on television, his second scheduled start on March 13 will be broadcast in the Texas market on MLB Network.
