News: Darvish (9-6) gave up two runs on four hits while striking out five over 4.1 innings in Wednesday's rain-shortened game against the Yankees. Impact: Darvish gets saddled with the tough-luck loss as the game was called in the bottom of the fifth. After balking in the tying run in the third inning, Darvish gave up a solo home run to Brett Gardner to give the Yankees the 2-1 lead that would end up proving the difference. He'll get the Yankees again next time out in his home park.(RotoWire, )

News: Darvish matched a season high with 12 strikeouts in Friday's 5-1 win at Toronto. Impact: Darvish allowed one run and five hits over 6 2-3 innings. He leads the majors with 11.36 strikeouts per nine innings.(STATS, 1:35pm)
Fri. July 18, 2014
News: Darvish allowed just one run on five hits, walking three and racking up 12 strikeouts over 6.2 innings of a 5-1 win over Toronto on Friday night. Impact: Darvish (9-5, 2.88 ERA) wasn't terribly efficient as he tossed 117 pitches (just 69 for strikes) en route to the win, but the dozen strikeouts are certainly welcomed by his fantasy owners. His only serious mistake was a seventh inning home run off the bat of Colby Rasmus. He'll take on the Yankees in New York next time out.(RotoWire, )

News: Darvish continued to struggle Wednesday, giving up a season-high six runs and 10 hits over six innings in an 8-4 loss to Houston. Impact: It's hard to explain what has happened lately to Darvish, who is 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA over his last five games.(STATS, 6:40pm)
Wed. July 9, 2014
News: Darvish was tagged with his fifth loss of the season Wednesday against the Astros. He gave up six runs on 10 hits with eight strikeouts over six innings. Impact: This was easily Darvish's worst outing of 2014, as the six earned runs and 10 hits are both season highs. The right-hander is going through an uncharacteristically tough stretch where he has allowed at least four runs in four of his last five starts. Still, Darvish has an ERA under 3.00 (2.97) with 142 strikeouts in 115.1 innings for a league-best 11.08 K/9 among qualified starters. The All-Star break is coming at a great time for the Rangers' ace.(RotoWire, )

News: Darvish did not get a decision in a 6-5 loss to the Mets on Friday night. Impact: Darvish, pushed back a day because of rain Thursday in Baltimore, entered with dominant stats against NL teams. But he was off in this one, allowing four runs and five hits in five innings. "He was a little erratic with his command, but I thought he did a good job of righting the ship there in the last three innings," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.(STATS, 3:42pm)
