Rangers SP Yu Darvish undergoes Tommy John surgery

Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Tuesday, according to the Star-Telegram. The procedure was done by Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Darvish missed the final weeks of the 2014 season due to elbow inflammation, and experienced tightness in his right triceps on March 5 before an MRI revealed a sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. After multiple options from different doctors, Darvish and the Rangers opted for surgery, ending his 2015 season.

Darvish went 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA in 22 starts, tossing two complete games and one shutout last season. He is 39-25 with a 3.27 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 680:218 K:BB ratio over 83 MLB starts (545 1/3 innings).
