ARLINGTON, Texas — Yu Darvish was placed on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder discomfort after making only three starts for the Rangers in his return from major elbow surgery.
Darvish had an MRI exam Monday in Texas and was examined by Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister.
The MRI exam showed no structural issues, but the right-hander from Japan is still bothered by discomfort in his pitching shoulder. The team said he will receive treatment until he is ready to throw again.
Darvish last pitched Wednesday, when he came out after five innings against Houston. He said after the game that tightness in his neck caused tightness in his shoulder.
That start against the Astros was Darvish's third since returning from Tommy John surgery. Darvish said he has "heard it's common for players that have had Tommy John surgery to have issues like this."
Bautista back: Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was back at designated hitter against Philadelphia after missing three games with a sore right thigh. Bautista left in the sixth inning against Baltimore on Thursday.
Collins returns tonight: Mets manager Terry Collins, who missed Sunday's game after feeling ill that morning in Milwaukee, will return tonight. Collins was seen by a doctor Sunday at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, and the team said all tests came back negative. Collins, who turned 67 last month, is the oldest manager in the majors.
