RHP Yu Darvish typically pitches after four days of rest, but because of RHP Nick Tepesch's injury and changes to the rotation, Darvish will have had five days rest before his next outing.

RHP Nick Tepesch left last Saturday's start and is now considered day-to-day with pain in his knee. He is 3-7 this season with a 4.84 ERA.

RHP Jerome Williams started against the A's last Thursday, the day his contract was purchased from Triple-A Round Rock. He is now set to start Friday as well.

SS Elvis Andrus has been the Rangers' most reliable contributor, having played in 105 of 106 possible games, which is a team high.
