Rangers' Darvish to make first start on Sunday

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Texas Rangers say ace Yu Darvish is set to make his first start of the season Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Manager Ron Washington says Darvish is as strong as he was before the neck stiffness that kept the pitcher from throwing for two weeks. Darvish was placed on the disabled list to start the season, though the move was retroactive to March 21, making the right-hander eligible to be activated this weekend.
Darvish reported feeling good Wednesday, a day after an 86-pitch bullpen session.
Tanner Scheppers, who started the opener and was scheduled for the series finale against the Rays, was pushed back to Monday at Boston.
Darvish finished second in the AL Cy Young Award voting last season, when he led the major leagues with 277 strikeouts.
