Yu Darvish will make his 2014 debut on Sunday in Tampa Bay

Yu Darvish update:  Yu Darvish will start for the Texas Rangers on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays in Tampa, per the beat guys on Twitter.

Darvish, who started the season on the disabled list after dealing with neck and back issues late in the spring, threw an extended bullpen session yesterday, and the sense seemed to be that, if he reported no issues today, he was likely to start Sunday or Monday for Texas.

Nick Martinez will be called up to start for the Rangers on Saturday, and so the most likely scenario is that Martinez will be optioned back to AA after his start to make room for Darvish on the 25 man roster.
