Here's what to watch for throughout the day (all times in ET):
Darvish looking to dazzle in LA: TEX@LAA, 3:37 p.m.
After missing the 2015 season due to Tommy John surgery, Darvish returned to the Rangers' rotation on May 28, 2016. In 17 starts, he went 7-5 with a 3.41 ERA.
The Japanese hurler had a tough outing on Opening Day, allowing four runs and five walks in 6 1/3 innings. Darvish recovered nicely in his second start against the Athletics, surrendering just one run in six innings, but he took the loss.
Darvish will try to finally reach the win column when he faces Ricky Nolasco and the Angels.
Bumgarner seeks elusive first win: COL@SF, 10:15 p.m.
Bumgarner has logged an MLB-most 15 innings through two starts in 2017. Considering he's also homered twice, it's almost cruel that he's yet to win a game.
Yes, Bumgarner has taken the mound only twice, but he went the distance his last time out with an eight-inning complete game at San Diego. He's allowed five runs in his two outings while striking out 16 and walking two.
The definition of a workhorse, Bumgarner has pitched at least 200 innings in every season since 2010, and he hasn't had an ERA over three for the season since 2012.
It's only a matter of time before he gets his first victory in 2017.
