• Yu Darvish isn't expected to need an extra day before his next start Wednesday against the Astros, after throwing 126 pitches Friday against the Red Sox. The Rangers do have an off-day on Thursday before their three-game home series against the Blue Jays, so they could give Darvish two extra days between starts if needed. "That will be predicated on how he feels when he throws again," manager Ron Washington said.
• Darvish retired the first 15 batters of a game for the fifth time since his Major League debut in 2012. No other pitcher has two such outings since the start of 2012, according to ESPN Stats and Info.
• Left-hander Joe Saunders made a rehab start for Double-A Frisco on Saturday night, allowing four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. He had two strikeouts and allowed a home run.
