A stiff neck sent Rangers ace Yu Darvish to the DL to start the season, but he was activated on Sunday and is making his first start of the year this afternoon. In the very first inning, he made some history by striking out reigning AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers: As that moment, Darvish career strikeout rate was 11.20 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. A handful of relievers do that every year, but that is a ridiculous number for a starting pitcher.
