A couple of young arms take the hill in Toronto on Monday night when Yu Darvish and Kyle Drabek square off. Both pitchers have posted an ERA under 2.50 to start the season.

Drabek has one prior start against the Rangers in his career, a win on April 25 of last season. In that start he gave up three runs over six innings and struck out two batters. Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba connected on a home run against Drabek in that outing.

The Rangers are looking to get back on track after dropping their first series of the year over the weekend to the Tampa Bay Rays.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:07 CT, and the game can be seen on Fox Sports Southwest and ESPN.
