Yu Darvish threw 44 pitches in his first bullpen session of the spring and appeared to have no issues with the elbow inflammation that sidelined him late in the 2014 season. (Source: rangersblog.dallasnews.com
Fantasy Impact: This is, of course, the guy that all eyes are on. Darvish is a legitimate No.1 starter if healthy. He will throw another session on Monday before the Rangers will officially comment on his status, but pitching coach Mike Maddux said "He threw very well...I liked what I saw." Monitor Darvish closely this spring, and don't be afraid to select him a little earlier in drafts than planned if things look positive.
