• Darvish finished the season with 277 strikeouts, the most in the Major Leagues. The only other Rangers pitcher to lead the Majors in strikeouts was Nolan Ryan with 301 in 1989.
• Jeff Baker is still unable to play the field while dealing with a strained groin muscle. He is available to hit, but that is why he did not start at first base with a left-hander on the mound for the Rays. Said Washington: "He could probably get something hit right at him, but I can't take that chance."
