Rangers Starters for April 9th.

It is D day, go time, and any other sports cliche you would like to use. The best Japanese export of the year Yu Darvish will have his first start in the majors. Eyes of most of the MLB world will be on Yu to see if he can live up to expectations.

In AAA Round Rock Zach Jackson will be on the mound as the Express open a series against the Omaha Stormchasers. This keeps the streak of Rangers prospects battling the farm teams of the Kansas City Royals.

For Frisco LHP Tim Murphy will be the Frisco portion of an all southpaw matchup.

Myrtle Beach will be off on Monday.

Finally the Hickory Crawdads will be on the road in Greenville with former Clemson great Will Lamb on the mound in front of many former supporters.

Good Luck Rangers
