Yu Darvish's statement on being scratched from tonight's start

The Texas Rangers have scratched Yu Darvish from today's start with neck stiffness. Scott Feldman will start in his place.

Darvish felt the stiffness this morning, received treatment and still had stiffness. The date of his next start is to be determined. His next scheduled start would be Sunday against Anaheim.

"I woke up with a stiff neck. I really wanted to throw tonight, it's just unfortunate I can't," Darvish said in a statement. "I am continuing to have treatment and taking the situation day-to-day."

Darvish has gone 16-9 with a 3.90 ERA this season, while Feldman is 6-11 with a 5.19 ERA. Feldman pitched in relief on Friday, his first appearance since being removed from the rotation.
