Rangers' Darvish to skip last start before ASG
Both the team and Darvish said Wednesday there is nothing physically wrong with the 25-year-old right-hander.
Washington said Darvish will be eligible to pitch in next week's All-Star Game in Kansas City if he is selected in the final round of fan voting.
Darvish, a five-time All-Star in Japan, signed a six-year contract worth $56 million with Texas in the offseason. In 16 starts this season, he is 10-5 with a 3.59 ERA.
