Player Notes
Yu Darvish plans to re-incorporate his split-finger fastball this season.

Advice: Darvish abandoned the pitch last season in his first year back from Tommy John surgery because it can create stress on your arm, but he'll begin to mix it back in this year. The righty threw the pitch just five percent of the time pre-surgery. "I was kind of astonished when he threw it (in a bullpen session Friday)," Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail said. "I waited a long time after my Tommy John surgery before I threw it again, but I don't have his delivery. He throws it correctly and uses a bit of his wrist so not all of the pressure is on his elbow in that pulling down motion. It's a little looser. And this guy, if there is any chance of hurting himself, he's not going to throw it. I'm comfortable with it."
