ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish will get some extra rest before his next start after throwing 126 pitches in another near no-hitter, and Martin Perez is expected to miss at least one start.
The Rangers announced Sunday that Darvish will not start as scheduled Wednesday at Houston. The right-hander instead is set for the series opener at home Friday against Toronto.
Perez, who has struggled in his last three starts, was scheduled for an MRI for discomfort in his left elbow that he reported after Saturday night's game. The Rangers expect him to miss at least his next start, which would have been Friday.
Nick Tepesch was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday for Triple-A Round Rock, and is slated to pitch for the Rangers on Wednesday.
