Yu Darvish to DL with elbow inflammation

Oh no...

Please, no...
Please, no...
Jason Miller

Well this really is our own personal hell of a baseball season.

Not the elbow, man. Never the elbow.

The Rangers are calling up lefty changeup specialist Alex Claudio -- which, under other circumstances would be a triumph -- to replace Darvish on the roster. The team has also announced that Robbie Ross will start for the Rangers tomorrow.

I hate this season.


This is good preliminary news. Hopefully the MRI results agree with this sentiment. Then again, the Rangers tend to undersell the initial injury reports. And, as Evan Grant points out, of the players with an "elbow inflammation" diagnosis from the Rangers this season, none have returned.
