ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish will miss his next start on Thursday because of tightness in his right quadriceps muscle.

The Rangers say the move to skip Darvish’s start is for precautionary reasons after he felt discomfort Tuesday during a bullpen session.

Roy Oswalt will pitch in Darvish’s place on Thursday against the Minnesota Twins.

In a statement released by the Rangers, Darvish emphasized that he doesn’t consider this to be an injury, but after consulting with manager Ron Washington and coaches, missing a start was believed to be the best course of action.

Darvish would be in line to start next Tuesday at home against the Tampa Bay Rays.
