Rangers catcher Geovany Soto will team with right-hander Yu Darvish for the first time in Sunday's series finale against Detroit.

Soto prepared for the start by catching Darvish's 39-pitch bullpen session on Friday. Soto came away with the same impression as his predecessors. Darvish has a wide variety of pitches.

"It's going to be a little different," Soto said. "But once I get to see him in a game and get through a couple innings, I'll get more used to what he likes to do."
