ESPNews Will Televise Yu Darvish's First Four Batters

Good news for those looking to watch Yu Darvish today in his Cactus League debut: ESPNews will broadcast the first four batters Darvish faces today, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

It's a bit odd that ESPNews will only broadcast the first four batters, but it's certainly better than no broadcast. Darvish will likely only face six to eight batters since he's only going to throw around 35 pitches, so the majority of the start will likely be seen on ESPNews.

It's the most anticipated spring training game in recent Texas Rangers history, as almost everybody is eager to get a good look at Darvish. The results of the start are essentially meaningless, but just seeing Darvish pitch, his location, stuff and poise on the mound, is certainly worth seeing.

Audio of the entire game will be available via webcast on texasrangers.com. First pitch between the Rangers and Padres is scheduled for 2:05 p.m. CT.
