Rangers' Darvish uses all seven pitches in session

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish threw 35 pitches to two minor leaguers in a 10-minute session.

Catcher Mike Napoli said Wednesday Darvish used his entire seven-pitch repertoire in facing Joey Butler and Chris McGuinnes. Darvish, who had an ERA of less than two the past five seasons while pitching in Japan, throws a two-seam fastball, a four-seam fastball, a split-finger fastball, a curve, slider, cutter and change up.

Darvish is next scheduled to throw the third inning of the Rangers intrasquad game Friday in Surprise. Darvish went 93-38 with a 1.99 ERA in 167 games in seven seasons with Hokkaido.

He is scheduled to face major leaguers from another team for the first time on March 7. The Rangers have said Darvish will get the start against the San Diego Padres in Peoria, Ariz.
