Yu Darvish makes his third start of the season. He’s gone six in each of his first two, allowing four runs in the first against Cleveland and just one his last time out against Oakland.
What’s a little different out of Darvish is the walk numbers. Eight in the first two starts nearly match his nine strikeouts. That will have to change if Darvish is to be an ace for a team that badly needs him this year.
Adrian Beltre is dealing with some complications with his strained right calf and will be out for at least some more days. In the meantime Joey Gallo will continue his duty as the every day third baseman.
Los Angeles Angels
Ricky Nolasco came an out short of a quality start in his debut and then followed that up with six innings and two runs allowed against Seattle in his last start.
He now has a WHIP under 1.20 in the 13 starts he’s made with the Angels since coming over from the Twins in the middle of last season. That figure would represent a single-season best for the 11 year veteran.
Watch out for both Kole Calhoun and Mike Trout, who have each had success against Darvish. Calhoun is 4-for-11 career with two homers, while Trout has four dingers in 37 tries.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction: starters keep it tight, let the bullpens decide.
This will be a fun matchup for those up late or on the West Coast. Two good starters should keep this one fairly low and close early, though both offenses will find ways to break through. The better bullpen should get its team the win on Thursday.

Sam Dyson is lost and the Rangers have a little problem in that pen as a result. I’ll take the home team.
