 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Yu Darvish says he’s probably “not worthy” of being an All-Star in his first season in the major leagues, despite his 10-4 record with the Texas Rangers.

The Japanese standout said Friday, two days before the All-Star teams will be announced, that he personally doesn’t feel like he’s an All-Star. And he says any talk of him starting for the American League squad is “totally out of context.”

Darvish was a five-time All-Star and two-time Pacific League MVP over the past seven seasons in Japan. The Rangers paid more than $107 million to sign the 25-year-old right-hander last winter.

Darvish was tied for the AL lead with 10 wins and had a 3.57 ERA. He had 106 strikeouts and 50 walks in 95 2-3 innings.
