Mike Napoli, Derek Holland and Michael Kirkman are among the handful of Rangers on Twitter and have encouraged their followers to send Yu Darvish to the All-Star Game. MLB has a designated hashtag for every player in the Final Vote, and every tweet with the '#VoteYu' hashtag will be counted for Darvish.
Voting ends today at 3 p.m. and Darvish has been in the lead since Day 1, but MLB said the races were tightening.
"Yeah, he definitely should be an All-Star," Holland said. "He's got what it takes, but now it's up to the fans."
Here are a few other notes from Thursday:
* Colby Lewis is scheduled to throw a light bullpen today. Manager Ron Washington expects Lewis to be ready for the second half. Washington added that he doesn't believe Lewis will need a rehab start, although that is subject to change.
* Alexi Ogando is scheduled to throw a second bullpen session today. After Ogando throws his third, the Rangers will have a better idea where he is and look at getting him a rehab assignment.
* Derek Holland will not be on a pitch count for his start on Saturday.
