If the Rangers’ rotation stays in its current order, starter Yu Darvish would make his final start of the first half on July 13 at home against the Angels. He would then have the option of pitching in the All-Star Game at Target Field in Minnesota on the 15th on one day of rest, with a limit of one inning.

As Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports, Darvish won’t pitch on one day’s rest. Instead, he told reporters, he’ll be going sightseeing.

Darvish, in his third season in the major leagues, owns a 2.62 ERA with a 118/36 K/BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings across 14 starts.

    No team will let its ace pitch on one day’s rest. Rangers big disappointment this year.

    Tanaka will be starting pitcher for the All Star Game anyway.

    Pray for a rainout. The world get Yu in the All Star Game, and the Angels avoid Yu Darvish!
