    Texas Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels discussed Yu Darvish's possible season-ending Tommy John surgery in Arizona.


    SOUNDBITE: (English) Jon Daniels, Texas Rangers General Manager

    "There's three options for Yu (Darvish) at this point. One is to attempt to pitch through it, which is not a great option. Two would be an effort to, for rest and rehab (rehabilitation). And I think the sentiment is that that's effectively what we did in the fall (autumn) and the winter and up until two days ago had very good results with it. He looked very good, but obviously that did not pan out as desired. And the third option would be surgery, Tommy John surgery. So, Yu (Darvish) is considering his options. Obviously an injury of this significance, we're not going to skip any steps. I think it's in everybody's best interests to get a second opinion. So we'll go through that process and get a second opinion here hopefully this weekend, so that Yu (Darvish) can make his final decision in short order."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Jon Daniels, Texas Rangers General Manager

    "His initial reaction was he wants to do what is needed to get back. But he agrees with everybody, let's take an extra 48 hours, get the second opinion, make sure we're all looking at this the right way."
