On Tuesday, RHP Yu Darvish was hit in the head by a line drive while throwing in the outfield. Darvish was doing some flat ground work when Leonys Martin hit a ball in batting practice that tipped off Derek Holland’s glove and glanced off Darvish’s head.

Darvish was cleared of a major injury by Rangers team physician Keith Meister and the right-hander even tweeted that he felt completely fine. Darvish, who owns a stellar 2.63 ERA and 153 strikeouts in 109 1/3 innings this season, is expected to make his start Wednesday against the Astros.
