Yu Darvish won’t be on the mound as the Rangers try to put more distance between themselves and the A’s tonight. He’s been scratched due to a stiff neck, the team announced.

Scott Feldman will pitch in his place.

Darvish has been on a terrific roll of late, having gone 4-0 with a 1.46 ERA and a 42/8 K/BB ratio in his last five starts. There hasn’t been any word yet on when he’ll pitch again, but his injury isn’t considered serious.

Feldman lost his rotation spot after giving up six runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Mariners on Sept. 15 and had pitched once in relief since, throwing three scoreless innings versus Seattle on Friday. He’s 1-1 with a 16.20 ERA in two starts against Oakland this year.

    Feldman is a grad of Burlingame HS and a College of San Mateo Alumni, so he’s facing one of his hometown teams, though he was probably a Giants fan growing up. The A’s have seen him a few times, and are no doubt pouring out a little extra rhum to Jobu in thanks.

    Up your butt, Jo-Boo.
