• Darvish set for elbow op


    SURPRISE: Japanese pitching ace Yu Darvish will have “Tommy John” ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow and will miss the 2015 Major League Baseball season, the Texas Rangers said Friday (Saturday in Manila). Darvish will have the operation in Florida on Tuesday, Rangers spokesman John Blake said. Darvish had an MRI exam last Friday, a day after he departed his pre-season debut after just one inning because of muscle tightness. He missed the finals six weeks of last season with inflammation in the elbow, but he and the Texas team had hoped he could avoid surgery.
