MINNEAPOLIS -- Yu Darvish showed up to the ballpark on Wednesday with his stiff neck feeling much better, and the Texas Rangers were able to breathe a sigh of relief knowing their Japanese ace wont have to join a long list of teammates on the disabled list. Darvish was scratched from his start on Tuesday night because of that neck discomfort, but Rangers manager Ron Washington said before a game against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday that the right-hander will start at Washington on Sunday. Darvish had an MRI on Tuesday that showed there was nothing to be concerned about and he was able to get through a workout at Target Field on Wednesday with no issues. Washington chose to just skip Darvishs turn in the rotation rather than bump him back a day or two to make sure that Darvish is as close to 100 per cent as possible before he returns to the mound. "One thing about Yu Darvish, if he wont be 100 per cent, hell let us know," Washington said. Darvish is 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA, the fourth-best in the league and has 71 strikeouts in 61 1-3 innings. Darvish didnt pitch for three weeks in spring training because of a stiff neck, a condition that pushed back his first start of this season to April 6. Washington said he wasnt sure what caused the neck pain this time, but he wasnt concerned about it becoming a nagging injury. "Yu Darvish is a different animal," Washington said. "He just doesnt want to have any reason why he doesnt feel well. So if he doesnt feel right ... wed much rather know hes OK. We dont want him worrying about it. So well hold him back until Sunday." Outfielder Daniel Robertson is also ready to go after a scary collision last week with Alex Rios and suffering an injury to the bone around his left eye. Robertson has been outfitted with a clear mask -- much like the ones NBA players wear when they break their noses -- that he will wear in the outfield to protect himself from further injury. He will have to wear the mask for four to six weeks and will use a modified batting helmet that protects the area when hes at the plate. "Its weird wearing it. Its frustrating wearing it," Robertson said. "But for the most part, there is no limitation." Harold Landry Jersey

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In his first game back after missing 17 games with a sprained left knee, Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Marian Gaborik again was sidelined with a broken collarbone. The team announced after a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night that Gaborik had been placed on the injured list and would be out indefinitely. Gaborik was injured when sandwiched between the Flyers Braydon Coburn and Zac Rinaldo while taking a shot midway through the first period of the game. Gaboriks shot went just wide, where teammate Nick Foligno collected it and fed Ryan Johansen for the games first goal. The 31-year-old Slovakian, who has 341 goals and 345 assists in 787 career NHL games, immediately skated off the ice and went to the dressing room.dddddddddddd "Obviously, its a big hole for our team," coach Todd Richards said. "You really feel for him. He worked hard to get back and was excited to play." Gaborik was expected to be an integral part of Slovakias Olympic team. "Its real disappointing for our team, and you feel for Marian," Richards said. Blue Jackets teammate Ryan Johansen, who had two goals in the Blue Jackets 6-3 victory over the Flyers, said the club got a surge just knowing that Gaborik was coming back on Saturday night. "It brought some energy before the game when you have a star coming back," Johansen said. "Then to see him go down like that, I feel bad. Its really unfortunate."
