There hasn't been a bigger story in spring training than that of Yu Darvish and his arrival in the major leagues with the Texas Rangers.
So it's no doubt that there's no way Darvish is "flying under the radar" to opposing teams.
Often times, a team will not let division opponents see a new acquisition when there's nothing on the line, which is the case in spring training.
The same goes for Neftali Feliz, who the rival Los Angeles Angels have seen, but not as a starter.
"We're not trying to hide him (Darvish) from anybody," manager Ron Washington told the Star-Telegram. "If his time falls and it's an American League West team, go get 'em."
With Darvish having exactly zero innings of work in the majors, the Rangers figure he needs all the work he can get against big-league hitters while the games still don't matter. Probably good thinking, there.
