Yu Darvish played catch on Monday but is still dealing with a stiff neck. The Rangers aren’t sure when he’ll get back on the mound and it appears more questionable if he’ll be ready for Opening Day.

Darvish is almost certain to miss his first turn through the rotation but no one seems overly worried that this will end up being a long-term issue. Of course everyone always says that right up until it becomes an issue. Darvish should be drafted as an SP1, but this takes some of the luster away.ANALYST: Ray Flowers Mobile App
