Worth noting

• Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish is making a $25,000 donation to help support the Dallas Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program. The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation is a major supporter of RBI, and Darvish said, ""I am happy to help a great cause and I hope that someday Major Leaguers will come out of the program."

• Washington said he expects catcher Robinson Chirinos to make his second start for the Rangers on Wednesday with a day game after a night game.

• Oakland pitcher A.J. Griffin said that as far as command, Monday's 5-1 victory over the Rangers was his best start in the Major Leagues. Washington agreed, saying, "He recognized what the umpire was doing and stayed with it."

• The Rangers have 12,500 tickets remaining for Thursday's game with the Tigers. Darvish is scheduled to face Justin Verlander in that game. There are approximately 7,000 tickets remaining for Friday and 3,000 for Saturday.
