Darvish looks sharp in bullpen session for Rangers

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Yu Darvish got right down to business when the Texas Rangers' pitchers and catchers reported to spring training on Sunday.

Darvish and fellow starter Matt Harrison threw back-to-back bullpen sessions. Darvish will start on opening day on March 31 against Philadelphia and Harrison started the 2013 opener for Texas.

Darvish, who led the American League with 277 strikeouts last year, threw to minor league catcher Jose Felix. Manager Ron Washington says he had an "outstanding bullpen."

After Darvish threw in front of a flock of Japanese media and photographers, Harrison took the mound. The left-hander won 18 games in 2012, but was restricted to two starts last year due to back problems and thoracic outlet surgery on his non-throwing shoulder.
