Most likely, Scott Baker will get the call, but it has not been announced yet who will be the starter. This is obviously not good news for the Texas Rangers, and anytime Yu Darvish is scratched from anything I get really, really nervous. It appears that he woke up thins morning with the stiffness in his neck according to Rangers John Blake
Darvish reported symptoms when he woke up this morning. Will have precautionary MRI today in Minneapolis. Symptoms like had in spring train.

The news is enough to make Texas Rangers fans everywhere hold their collective breath or just begin freaking out! I think that now would be a good time to panic! If the Texas Rangers lose Yu Darvish for any amount of time, that would be the death nail in the already death like season that the Texas Rangers are currently having, winning streak of the last week aside.
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME @BASEBALLGODS

He will have a precautionary MRI to make sure that everything is okay. Yikes.
