PEORIA, Ariz. -- The news Wednesday was all about Yu Darvish, who threw two scoreless innings at Peoria Sports Complex against the San Diego Padres. Here are six things from Rangers spring training Wednesday:

1. Yu Darvish showed good command with his fastball and movement on his breaking pitches as he went two scoreless. He also flashed some defense. Read about all of it here.

2. Here's a breakdown of Darvish's outing, including pitch-by-pitch, and some of my thoughts.

3. Darvish wasn't the only player in the game today. Read about some of the others.

4. Michael Young exited the game a little early because he landed awkwardly on his thumb, but felt fine after the game.

5. David Murphy is working on his approach against lefties.

6. Here's a recap of our live chat from Darvish's outing today.
