Though Texas won’t have its star slugger this weekend, Yu Darvish gives the Rangers a good shot to continue their dominance of the Houston Astros.
The Cubs and former Rangers pitcher Scott Feldman have agreed to a one-year contract, the team said Tuesday. Feldman is guaranteed $6 million next season.
The Rangers have declined a $9.25 million club option for Scott Feldman and a $1.2 million option for Yoshinori Tateyama, making both right-handers free agents.
Nate McLouth’s two-run home run keyed Baltimore’s four-run fifth inning and the Orioles held off the Texas Rangers 5-3 Tuesday night.

Right-hander Roy Oswalt will join the Rangers on Friday and make his 2012 debut against the Rockies. That, of course, means that someone in the current Ranger rotation must go.
