It will be Darvish's first start at Surprise Stadium. In his first Cactus League start, Darvish gave up two hits and struck out three batters in two innings against the San Diego Padres on March 7 in Peoria.
Washington said the pitchers are on a six-man rotation in spring training. Darvish did not throw Monday in anticipation for his second start against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday at Goodyear Ballpark. Darvish will have the same workload during his second outing on the mound as the rest of the Rangers' starters. He will pitch three innings and his limit will be 50 pitches.
"He's doing everything everyone else is doing," Washington said.
