The biggest news of the morning involves the Texas Rangers. This has been building for a long time coming, and it appears that one-time ace Yu Darvish may need Tommy John surgery that would cause him to miss the entire season.
Darvish statement: "I will be disappointed if I have to miss the season but want to look at all options, including getting a second opinion"

This really contributes to what figures to be an absolute dumpster-fire season for the Texas Rangers. Without their number one starter, they’ll be in full rebuild mode and probably lose between 90 and 100 games we would expect.
And there’s nothing about this that is good for baseball. No power arm in the game is safe from this injury, no one is immune to it. It appears that yet another great talent in the game will miss significant time with arm troubles.
