Intrasquad lineups: Yu Darvish starts

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Yu Darvish starts and will get one inning (or a pitch count, whichever comes first) in an intrasquad game today on the back fields at Surprise Recreation Campus. It will be Darvish's first chance to fully test his back in game-like conditions, though he hasn't had any trouble in his live batting practice sessions the past week. Darvish said he felt better in mid-January and hasn't had a problem since then.
