Tuesday Yu Darvish Update

Yu Darvish threw 86 pitches in a bullpen session today without issue, and while the Rangers aren't saying much, the assumption would be that if he recovers as expected from the workout, he will be able to start by sometime during the weekend.

Nick Martinez is slated to start Saturday, however, it would t surprise me to see Darvish take that turn in an effort to keep from overusing the bullpen so early in the season.

Colby Lewis could also be ready to go immediately after, with Matt Harrison looking to be ready by the end of the month. Just one day into the season and it appears that the first round of reinforcements are on the way, and that has to be comforting to any Rangers fan.
