Yu Darvish to fly back early on Thursday

By Richard Durrett

BALTIMORE -- Now that the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles are going to play a doubleheader Thursday, the arrival time back in Dallas is likely going to be delayed.

Unless both games are played at a nice pace (which isn't usually the case), the club's flight will land in Dallas after 2:30 a.m. CT.

Yu Darvish, who starts Friday's game, will fly back early Thursday to be sure he gets a full night of sleep. That was the plan anyway. What changed is that Matt Harrison, scheduled to start Saturday afternoon against the Angels, will not fly back with him.

"We can't take a chance with two games tomorrow," Washington said. "We might need Harry."
