Darvish will miss the entire 2015 season and probably the first month of the 2016 season. He spent the final six weeks of the 2014 campaign on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow and then left his Cactus League debut this spring after suffering a sprained elbow ligament. The 28-year-old right-hander is due $10 million from the Rangers this season, another $10 million in 2016, and then $11 million in 2017.
